The ruling party’s communications director has said that everyone must accept the clear outcome of Sunday’s election.
Balázs Hidvéghi pointed out that the opposition “looks down on” the Hungarian people. “Everyone must accept the crystal clear outcome” of the election, he said. “When there’s an outcome the Soros brigade doesn’t like, they attack democracy itself,” he added.
Hidvéghi said the opposition had originally interpreted the high turnout in the election as its own success, but the actual result was followed by resignations across the opposition parties. Then they proceeded to allege electoral fraud, the communications director added.
He said the opposition was carrying on with its “back-and-forth” and that it was once again Democratic Coalition leader Ferenc Gyurcsány “setting the pace” on the left.
Hidvéghi said Fidesz was surprised to have won a supermajority, adding that it meant great responsibility for the party.
