The ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance has selected Justice Minister László Trócsányi to head their list for next year’s European Parliamentary elections, Fidesz announced on Thursday.
Trócsányi will also be nominated for European commissioner,
Balázs Hidvéghi, the party’s communications director said.
On the election list, published on Fidesz’s website:
Norbert Erdős, Balázs Rákossy
Hidvéghi said that
“Hungary cannot rely on its opposition” in the European Parliament “in the fight against attempts to import even more migrants to Europe” and insisted that “such candidates are needed that will promote Hungary”.
As we wrote last week, Jobbik Movement for a Better Hungary has presented the English version of the party’s EP election programme titled “Safe Europe, Free Hungary!” to the foreign media representatives working in Hungary. Read more here, check out the programme.
