PM Orbán: Fidesz belongs to a civic, national and Christian community

“We must always remember that, from 1956 onwards, generations have fought and worked for Hungary to become a place where Hungarian people can decide on what happens in their homeland: this is called an election,” PM Orbán said

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said that what is directly at stake in next month’s general election is whether Hungary will remain a Hungarian country.

The prime minister made the remarks while visiting District VIII on Monday on the first Budapest stop in his election campaign tour of the country.

PM Orbán also said that he can see that the tone of the election campaign is becoming increasingly radical and coarse. He declared that their party belongs to a civic, national and Christian community.

“We must always remember that, from 1956 onwards, generations have fought and worked for Hungary to become a place where Hungarian people can decide on what happens in their homeland: this is called an election,” he said.

The prime minister highlighted that Budapest’s District VIII will be the location of development projects of national significance, of which not only the local residents can be proud, but also every Hungarian.

He said development projects of national importance have been realised there. For example, the Ludovika Military Academy and the National Riding School have been completed in the district recently. He said these projects had symbolic impact at a national level.

The prime minister said that in his view, the appearance of migrants in the area in 2015 came as a shock because it happened in a city where public safety was improving. As he mentioned previously on the campaign trail a vote for his party will ensure Hungary remains free of illegal immigrants.
