The Socialist Party has said the motto of the 29th Bálványos Summer University in Baile Tusnad (Tusnádfürdő), in central Romania, should be “transition from democracy to dictatorship”.
Socialist MEP István Ujhelyi told MTI that his party would hold events at five locations in Transylvania and Szeklerland over the next two days. He said the tour presented an opportunity to meet with leaders of Hungarian organisations beyond the borders in Miercurea Ciuc (Csíkszereda), Targu Mures (Marosvásárhely) and Oradea (Nagyvárad), so they could share their aspirations concerning policy for Hungarian communities beyond the border.
Referring to a speech Prime Minister Viktor Orbán made at the Baile Tusnad event four years ago, he said the place reminded Hungarians of the establishment of an “illiberal, anti-democratic system”.
Ujhelyi insisted that “the nation’s reunification” would be possible in the coming decades only within a united, strong and borderless Europe. He added that
the ruling Fidesz party, which has always emphasised its Hungarianness, wanted to dismantle the European Union.
Zsolt Molnár, the party’s deputy leader, accused Fidesz and the government of giving aid only to Hungarian organisations that cooperate and sympathise with them. Whereas it is right to support cross-border Hungarian groups, the funding should be decided by an independent body, he argued.
As we wrote last year about Tusványos: The European Union must regain its “independence from the empire” of US billionaire George Soros, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in a speech to Tusványos summer university, in central Romania. Orbán said an “alliance” had formed in Brussels between “the European bureaucratic elite and the Soros empire in opposition to the people”. He said the “Soros plan” involved importing one million migrants to the EU and giving them 15,000 euros each. Moreover, migrants would be distributed among member states by a new EU agency, he said.
