In an interview given ahead of a conference in Budapest of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Miklós Szánthó, the head of the Centre for Fundamental Rights think-tank, called the Hungarian right-wing “the most successful political movement in Western civilisation”.
He told public radio that conservatives in the Western world had noticed and prized its achievements so far.
The Budapest event held under the banner God, home, family, he added, was not only a recognition of those achievements but also an important gesture towards Hungary’s right-wing.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán will be the keynote speaker, and the broad span of the Western right — former American senators, members of Congress as well as Belgian, Italian, Spanish, French, and Austrian politicians and journalists — will participate, he noted.
The head of the think-tank said Hungary had established a “defence mechanism” against the liberal worldview, mentioning “multiculturalism and gender ideology” as examples. Hungary’s right-wing has shown that democracy does not have to be liberal, and there is growing interest in Western conservative circles in the Hungarian formula, he said.
