The Socialist head of parliament’s national security committee has called on Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to appear before the body and present evidence that there is a “Soros Plan” the government has been referring to.
Zsolt Molnár told a press conference on Thursday that unless Orbán can prove the existence of such a scheme which the government has linked to US billionaire George Soros, the ruling parties should stay away from the upcoming parliamentary election because “they have been feeding obvious lies to the Hungarian public”.
Molnár insisted that a “Soros Plan” did not exist but was “invented by (ruling) Fidesz’s PR machinery to mislead the people and divert attention from the actual state of the country”.
The Socialist politician added that other opposition members of the committee, delegated by green LMP and radical nationalist Jobbik, also agreed with his proposal to hear the prime minister on the subject.
Fidesz group leader Gergely Gulyás told a press conference on a different subject that Orbán would not appear before the committee, and added that the body “does not need to pursue a political witch hunt”.
