Hungary’s opposition parties themselves are unsure that they would be capable of governing the country together, so their victory in April would lead to early elections within a matter of months, ruling Fidesz’s parliamentary group leader said on Thursday.
At stake in the April 8 election is whether Hungary’s stability can be preserved through the re-election of the Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance or whether “stability will be replaced by chaos” with the election of a new government, Gergely Gulyás told an event organised by the Nézőpont Institute.
Hungarian government stability over the past eight years have given the country a “scientifically and economically demonstrable” competitive advantage, Gulyás said.
But this would not be the case if the opposition came to power, he said, arguing that not even those parties themselves were claiming that they would be capable of governing the country together.
Hungary ranked second behind Germany in terms of the performances last year of 11 central European governments released by Nézőpont. The Czech Republic was ranked third. Hungary was ranked first in the category of political stability.
Nézőpont’s study also confirms that a disciplined economic policy leads to stability, Gulyás said.
“Once the Germans, too, put aside the doctrines of their own left-liberal media, they will have to realise that the Visegrád countries are their most important economic allies within the European Union, and these are also the countries with the best outlooks for economic growth,” Gulyás said.
