PM Orbán: The future of Hungary and Europe counts on those that vote in today's EP elections

Hungary’s future weight in the European Union will be determined “by the decision of Hungarian voters on Sunday”

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said that “the future of Hungary and Europe counts” on those that turn up at the polls to vote in today’s European Parliamentary elections.

“All that support migration will be there; let us be there, too!” PM Orbán said in an interview published in Magyar Nemzet and syndicated to regional press around the country.

The Prime Minister added that Hungary’s future weight in the European Union will be determined “by the decision of Hungarian voters on Sunday”.

“Migration is the most important issue for Europe’s future, whether we can preserve the continent’s cultural identity, its civilization based on Christian foundations,” PM Orbán said, adding that “voters will be able to stop migration if they send anti-migration deputies to Brussels.”

“Brussels is making a very strong effort to change the whole of Europe,” PM Orbán said, and argued that “some politicians, parties, government, business circles, academic networks and centers think that Europe should leave Christian culture and the whole history of nationalism behind and set up a United States of Europe instead, an empire of mixed population in which neither Christian nor national identity means anything.”

PM Orbán added that “if Hungary had had a leftist government in recent years, our cities would look like some in Germany or France, with hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa or the Middle East.” He said Hungary’s opposition politicians should “at last realise that the country’s having a very stable, patriotic and Christian government is not just an accident but comes from its cultural identity”.

“This is the foundation, this is the Hungarian world, the goals and endeavors of which are embodied by its government of which I am the leader,” he insisted.

PM Orbán said that the values of his government such as “patriotism, respect for Europe’s Christian culture, supporting families, protecting jobs, striving for full employment, raising minimum wages and having security issues as a top priority on the agenda” are all in line with the interests of the Hungarian people.

PM Orbán added that schemes such as “migrant cards, migrant visas or billions of euros to support Soros’s pro-migration organizations” must be stopped and the funds spent on border control and family assistance.
