Parliamentary group leader says that building a civic Hungary will remain Fidesz’s key long-term objective

Gulyás said that if ruling Fidesz fails to garner an absolute majority on April 8th, there will be “chaos after Sunday’s ballot for an unforeseeable period, followed by new elections"

Gergely Gulyás, Fidesz’s ruling parliamentary group leader, has said that building a civic Hungary will remain the party’s key long-term objective.

During an interview in Demokrata, Gulyás said that a civic Hungary stands for preserving the national self-consciousness the country has fought hard for over the recent past as well as striving to achieve western living standards.

The parliamentary group leader noted the work force comprising 740,000 more people, budget discipline and economic growth as the Fidesz government’s main achievements over the past eight years.

Gulyás branded Jobbik as “the far-right party it has always been in terms of its core members, methods and political tools”.

Regarding the leftist parties, he said “the most eloquent evidence of the Hungarian left’s incompetence and ineptitude” was that Democratic Coalition leader and former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány was still on the scene and “doing relatively well” compared with the other opposition forces.

Gulyás said that if ruling Fidesz fails to garner an absolute majority on April 8th, there will be “chaos after Sunday’s ballot for an unforeseeable period, followed by new elections."
