Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, speaking to supporters as the results of Sunday’s election came in, declared that ruling Fidesz had secured its greatest victory even when “great international forces” had mobilised against it.
All the money international organisations provided to the Hungarian opposition was “money down the drain”, he said. Referring to financier George Soros, Orbán said “the Hungarian left is Uncle Gyuri’s worst investment; they have done nothing but take money for twelve years.”
“We’ve protected Hungary’s peace and security,” Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in a victory speech after his Fidesz-led alliance secured a fourth successive term in Sunday’s election. “We’ve protected Hungary’s independence and freedom; we’ve protected its peace and security,” Orban said. Referring to the referendum on child protection, he added: “Although the final results are not known yet, I trust we’ve also protected our children and families.”
Addressing supporters at the Bálna Centre on the Pest side of the River Danube, the site where Fidesz awaited the results, Orbán said:
“The whole world could see here in Budapest tonight that Christian Democratic policies, conservative civic policies and patriotic policies have won.”
“We’re sending the message to Europe that this is not the past, this is the future,” he said. “This will be our shared European future.” “The whole world can see that Hungarians love their country,” he added. “We who have won tonight commit to always putting Hungary first,” Orbán said.
