János Lázár: The election will decide whether there will be “a government formed by George Soros or by Hungarian people who are against migration”

Whether Hungary becomes an “immigrant country” or it remains Hungarian is at stake during the April 8th parliamentary election, says government office chief

Whether Hungary becomes an “immigrant country” or it remains Hungarian is at stake during the April 8th parliamentary election, the government office chief has said.

János Lázár said that the election will decide whether there will be “a government formed by George Soros or by Hungarian people who are against migration”.

He said that during the past eight years, despite the mistakes made, they worked for strengthening Hungary’s independence and now others want to weaken the country, the nation and the community “from the money of various powerful people”.

Lázár said politicians in Hungary are either pro-migration or anti-migration and he belongs to the latter group. The minister added that, if re-elected, he would fight for Hungary’s sovereignty and independence.

He said it was important for ruling Fidesz’s candidates during the upcoming weeks to convince people that they are able to defend the country. In these efforts, “they can cite the building of the border fence,” which was not supported by any of the opposition parties.

He also said that what’s also at stake is whether those form a government who are able to develop the country by means of work and performance or “those who only talk about it”.

Minister Lázár said opposition MPs and supporters have been submitting numerous complaints to the European Union because they hope that “people there who are against us or those that used to be employed by the Gyurcsány government and are now employed by the European Commission in Brussels” would initiate procedures against Hungary.

He also highlighted how the current administration is a fair, responsible and reasonable government, compared to the previous corrupt government.

“It was clear between 2002 and 2010 that there was much corruption because the state treasury was empty, after all the money having been stolen,” Lázár said. “Currently there is money in the state treasury because we are not stealing. Simple as that,” he added.

He concluded that never since the regime change has the state had as much as currently, with 3,000-4,000 billion HUF (9.5bn-12.7bn EUR) worth of state property repurchased since 2010.
