PM Orbán will again address this year’s Bálványos Summer University in Băile Tușnad

The head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee said it's being organized “at a key time of political stability” in Hungary

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán will again address this year’s Bálványos Summer University in Băile Tușnad (Tusnádfürdő). 

The head of Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee said it's being organized “at a key time of political stability” in Hungary following the spring general election. 

Zsolt Németh said that with its internal political situation stable, Hungary has been able to expand its room for manoeuvre internationally, and preparations are also under way for next year’s European parliamentary election. 

He added that the motto of the 29th Summer University, to be held between July 24th and 29th, is “Our Passion: Tusványos”. 

Németh said that this shows that open speech, national cohesion and the vision of a Europe built on traditional values have become part of the identities of the university’s organizers and participants. 

Németh said this year's theme demonstrates that a competition of differing visions on the future of Europe is under way. 

He added that Hungary and its ruling Fidesz party want to make their mark in this race by forming an alliance for the Europe of nations.
