Budapest (MTI) – 2014 has been a “politically exhausting” year with its three national votes and the ruling parties have failed to address the country’s gravest problems, the leader of the radical nationalist Jobbik party told a press conference on Tuesday.
Gabor Vona said that though ruling Fidesz had won all three elections with a landslide, it is now in a crisis which will “bring about its fall”. He insisted that while parties of the leftist opposition are incapable of government, his Jobbik has now “overcome them in terms of voter support, ethics and (political) programme”.
Among key problems of the country Vona mentioned unemployment, emigration, welfare issues, corruption, public safety, as well as issues around Hungary’s foreign policy. The latter, he said, could become a source of especially serious problems next year.
