Budapest, March 27 (MTI) – Hungary’s radical nationalist Jobbik is the only credible alternative to the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democratic alliance, Jobbik leader Gabor Vona told a press conference today.
Referring to public opinion polls showing a “continuous increase” in voter support for Jobbik, Vona said that its support was now on a par with the left-wing parties.
The ruling parties are backed by “enormous resources” he warned, calling on supporters to mobilise potential voters in the ten days left before the general election.
Vona said “the Socialists rely on people’s forgetfulness and Fidesz on their gullibility.” Jobbik, however, offers “honesty, reason, and a positive future”.
In Tarki’s latest poll, the five-party left-of-centre opposition alliance had the support of 21 percent of voters with a clear party preference, as against 20 percent for Jobbik.
