The radical Mi Hazánk party will support proposals in parliament that serve the interests of the Hungarian people, and does not want to be a “visceral opposition”, Dóra Dúró, the party’s deputy leader, said on Wednesday.
Speaking to public news channel M1, Dúró said Mi Hazánk saw its crossing of the 5 percent threshold for seats in parliament in the election as “a triumph of the heart, faith, work and being principled”.
Mi Hazánk’s campaign had been at a disadvantage and the party had been hindered in getting its message out.
She said the party’s base was partly made up of former Jobbik voters, adding, at the same time, that the party had provided “new answers to a number of 21st-century issues”.
She said that when it came to the pandemic, ruling Fidesz and the opposition left-liberal parties “pursued the same policy of lockdowns and forcing vaccines onto people”. She said Mi Hazánk had been the only party
to speak out against the stationing of NATO troops in Hungary and was the only one to oppose granting European Union membership to Ukraine unconditionally.
Asked about Mi Hazank’s role as an opposition party, Dúró said they would only consider the interests of the country.
“We don’t want to be a hysterical and visceral opposition,”
she said. Mi Hazánk will examine every proposal based on its contents and will support them if they benefit the Hungarian people, she added.
