Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party will not allow the implementation of the “Soros plan”

Lajos Kósa said that efforts to set up and expand a network of civil organizations aimed at implementing the European Parliament’s mandatory migrant relocation plan are already under way

Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party has said that as long as it is governing Hungary, it will not allow the implementation of the “Soros plan” on migrant quotas.

Lajos Kósa, the minister in charge of the government’s Modern Cities program, said in Debrecen that efforts to set up and expand a network of civil organizations aimed at implementing the European Parliament’s mandatory migrant relocation plan are already under way.

According to Kósa, US billionaire George Soros has transferred 130 million HUF (414,000 EUR) to a local NGO, the Association of Alternative Communities (AKE). But instead of performing real civil tasks, the AKE will help settle and integrate migrants, and facilitate family reunification procedures. Kósa also added that the association’s operation was non-transparent.

“Debrecen has already done its share in tackling the migrant crisis; the city has fought for a long time for closing the local refugee camp that has caused a lot of problem for the residents in the area,” Kósa said.

Local Mayor László Papp said the city firmly protests against the operation of “sham charity civil organizations” that help implement the Soros plan. “These are political organizations,” Papp said and called on AKE to stop “its political activities”.
