House Speaker László Kövér has accused the leftist opposition of pursuing “an openly treacherous policy”.
In an interview published in the Saturday issue of Magyar Nemzet, the house speaker said manifestation of that politics has been prevalent in calls by the left urging ethnic Hungarians in the southern region of neighboring Slovakia “to be proud Slovaks” and in Transylvania “to support with their votes a Romanian party”.
In Brussels, the opposition has repeatedly asked for withdrawing as much community funding as possible from Hungary and punishing the country to the greatest possible extent. While Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party pursues a nation-oriented policy, the left-wing parties “have become paid servants in global political endeavours aiming to eliminate nation states”, he said.
As regards Hungary’s general election next spring, Kövér said the opposition “seeks to turn it into a hate campaign, as it always did over the past twelve years”.
“The aim is to have a loose mass of consumers composed of people with no identity, national traditions or culture or roots and with no personality,” he said.
Kövér said in today’s Europe Hungary “along with Poland, is one of the last fortresses protecting Christian values”. “This is why it is not by accident that we both face all contempt and curse”. This is why next year’s general election will be decisive which “the other side is also aware of”, he said, adding that “we must prepare for every eventuality, even that they will do the unimaginable to overthrow our civic government”.
