Budapest (MTI) – The Jobbik party will support a constitutional amendment aimed to enhance Hungary’s security, party leader Gábor Vona said on Tuesday.
“After six months wasted, 15 billion forints of public money spent and a failed and invalid referendum, [Prime Minister] Viktor Orbán has realised that Jobbik has been right from the very beginning,” Vona said in a statement commenting on Orbán’s announcement of the planned amendment.
He said that Orbán’s proposal is identical with Jobbik’s earlier initiative.
As a party dedicated to issues concerning the nation, Jobbik will take part in the five-party talks initiated by Fidesz, Vona said.
Orbán said earlier on Tuesday that a constitutional amendment supported by Fidesz will seek to introduce changes in view of Sunday’s referendum results, in which 98 percent voted against the EU’s mandatory quota regime.
