House Speaker: European elites brand dissenters radical

László Kövér said it was a realistic expectation that anti-migration forces will have greater weight in the next European Parliament

The current leaders of the European Union brand all those who disagree with them as radicals, Speaker of the House László Kövér said at an EP campaign event in Paks, central Hungary.

According to Rmx.news, Kövér said bureaucrats in Brussels have been dragging their feet in approving the expansion of the Paks nuclear power plant, causing delays in the work that “would not have happened if the Brussels leaders were different and our political views would have been better matched”.

With regard to migration – which Kövér said was the key issue of the upcoming European elections – the speaker said “in the campaign the mainstream politicians of the older member states and of the European Commission are attempting to present migration as an issue that has already been solved, focusing on climate change and other matters instead”.

Kövér said it was a realistic expectation that anti-migration forces will have greater weight in the next European Parliament, which would also mean that “maybe one half of Europe will no longer want to force its world view and vision of the future through dictates on the other half”.
