Budapest, June 1 (MTI) – Radical nationalist leader Gábor Vona has said he will make the appropriate decision concerning controversial Jobbik MEP Béla Kovács if evidence is presented of any wrongdoing.
Vona’s comment came after Fidesz deputy leader Szilárd Németh called on the Jobbik leader to expel Kovács from the party. Kovács stands accused of spying for Russia.
Németh told public television M1 after a session of parliament’s national security committee on Tuesday that Kovács had worked as part of a network of spies for a foreign power while parading as a Jobbik politician.
Vona told public television M1 on Wednesday that if the relevant authorities conclude their investigations with proof against Kovács then he would “come to a decision”.
Meanwhile, Vona, who was recently reelected as party leader, vowed to tour the nation with the message that Jobbik is a national people’s party and a broad church. The main themes of the tour will be corruption, education and health care, he said.
