Radical party Mi Hazánk (Our Homeland) has sent its “condolences” to the conservative Jobbik, with Előd Novák, Mi Hazánk’s leader, declaring his party, which secured just over 6 percent in the general election held earlier in April, the natural home of radical nationalist voters.
Mi Hazánk’s deputy leader placed a flag of mourning over the entrance to a Jobbik office in the capital’s 11th district, and said Jobbik voters were welcome to join its fold.
He said the party’s grassroots politics would continue even now that it had won seats in parliament.
Novák, one-time member of Jobbik before the party moved towards the centre, said Péter Jakab, Jobbik’s leader, was a “political corpse” and a “traitor” who had abandoned his principles and dragged his party towards the left wing.
Here is how the leaders of Mi Hazánk, president László Toroczkai and VP Dóra Dúró, Előd Novák’s wife, celebrated that they won six seats in the next parliament on the night of the 2022 general elections:
