Patriotic people’s party Jobbik will run candidates in all the 106 individual constituencies in the general election on April 8, party director Gábor Szabó said on Friday.

Jobbik has officially registered at the National Election Office as a party to participate in the election, he said in a statement.

Jobbik will run independently with the aim of replacing the government, he said.

Szabó accused the government of using the State Audit Office to impose an “illegal” fine of 663 million forints (EUR 2.1m) “in order to prevent Jobbik from running in the election”. Their attempt, however, proved to be a fiasco, he added.

The director said that donations of 101.24 million forints had already been collected from over 6500 Hungarian donors who are prepared to help Jobbik pay the fine.

The State Audit Office has imposed the fine for alleged violations of party financing regulations.

After Jobbik submitted a complaint against the decision, the office said the fine could also be paid at a later date, after the elections, and in instalments.
