Fidesz MP says the government’s stability over the past eight years has given the country a “scientifically and economically demonstrable” competitive advantage

Gergely Gulyás said that what’s at stake in the April 8 election is whether Hungary’s stability can be preserved through the re-election of the Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance or whether “stability will be replaced by chaos” with the election of a new government

Fidesz’s parliamentary group leader has said that Hungary’s opposition parties are unsure that they would be capable of governing the country together, so their victory in April would lead to early elections within a matter of months.

Gergely Gulyás said that what’s at stake in the April 8 election is whether Hungary’s stability can be preserved through the re-election of the Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance or whether “stability will be replaced by chaos” with the election of a new government.

Gulyás added that the government’s stability over the past eight years has given the country a “scientifically and economically demonstrable” competitive advantage. But this would not be the case if the opposition came to power, he said. “Not even those parties themselves were claiming that they would be capable of governing the country together,” he added.

According to a recent survey conducted by Nézőpont, Hungary ranked second behind Germany in terms of the performances of 11 central European governments last year. Hungary was ranked first in the category of political stability.

Nézőpont’s study also confirms that a disciplined economic policy leads to stability, Gulyás said. “Once the Germans, too, put aside the doctrines of their own left-liberal media, they will have to realize that the Visegrad countries are their most important economic allies within the European Union, and these are also the countries with the best outlooks for economic growth,” he added.
