PM Orbán: ‘Our goal is that opponents of immigration become a majority in the institutions of the EU’

Jan 10, 2019

The upcoming European Parliamentary elections will be decisive, said Prime Minister Orbán at the government’s first press conference of the year in an opening statement before an extended and free-wheeling Q&A session with domestic and international press. As Hungary remains the only EU state that has asked its citizens directly about migration, these EP elections present an opportunity for the people of Europe to decide about the continent’s future.

PM Orbán: Nation states gave Europe its strength

Oct 23, 2018 - Zoltán Kovács

“We would have never thought,” Prime Minister Orbán said, that 29 years after the fall of the Soviet Union, Europe – once again – has to face a massive challenge. This time, it’s not “an external military threat, American or Russian endeavors that put Europe’s future in jeopardy,” but it’s Europe itself. This is why “we have to vote for the future of patriotism and national pride,” the PM said.
