PM Orbán urges people to stand up for what they believe and vote rather than relying on the polls

"We have [less than] 48 hours to bring everyone to vote. One voter, two votes. Millions of Hungarians, millions of votes. This is what stands against millions of dollars. And I believe that money cannot triumph over the will of millions of Hungarians,” the prime minister stressed

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán gave a rousing speech at the closing event of his 2018 election campaign yesterday and urged the country to get behind Fidesz to secure Hungary’s future.

“Besides electing members of Parliament, Hungary also chooses its future. Decades are at stake, the outcome is irreparable, it’s final and it cannot be undone. The last time we’ve been at such crossroads was in 1990, at the end of the communist regime,” he said.

"We have [less than] 48 hours to bring everyone to vote. One voter, two votes. Millions of Hungarians, millions of votes. This is what stands against millions of dollars. And I believe that money cannot triumph over the will of millions of Hungarians,” he stressed.

The prime minister added that everyone who wants to preserve Hungary as a Hungarian country should go to the polls on Sunday and vote twice for Fidesz “because it’s the only thing that is sure – anything else is gambling and could jeopardize our future”.

 “We erected the fence, defended the southern borders. We said no to Brussels’ resettlement plans, but the danger is still present. They can’t wait to do it again,” he added.

The prime minister also reminded people that they shouldn’t rely on the polls and to stand up for what they believe and vote.

“Don’t think that we already have this election in our pockets. Don’t believe what the pollsters say. We don’t have to win the polls, but the elections on Sunday,” he added.

Speaking about the campaign closing event, PM Orbán said that they have no intention of ending the campaign, but instead they’ll launch a final charge. “As a certain Rocky Balboa said: it always ends at the end,” he said.
