Party leader Gábor Vona has said Jobbik has the only realistic scenario for how to unseat the Fidesz government.
Speaking at a party event in Budapest on Saturday, the party’s leader and candidate for prime minister insisted Jobbik also had a vision and a plan of what would happen in the event of an election win.
Vona outlined seven areas in which Jobbik would make its mark: enhancing security and democracy, abolishing corruption, boosting competitiveness, stopping immigration, burnishing national prestige and building social unity.
The Jobbik leader said
while the left-wing parties wanted to replace each other, Jobbik was determined to govern and had the strength to replace the ruling Fidesz party.
In his hour-long speech, Vona said the government promised that Hungary would be free of migrants, yet it turned out that 2,300 refugees settled in the country and the government’s explanation for why had been twisted by lies.
He pledged to abide by international conventions while “quietly, without publicity, firmly defending Hungary against migration, terrorism and quotas.” He said the border fence was here to stay and other sections of the border would also get a fence protected by an independent border guard.
