Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is currently in Brussels attending a two-day meeting of the Centrist Democrat International (CDI), a Christian democratic political formation.
During the meeting, the CDI is scheduled to hold a special leadership election. PM Orbán has been nominated for re-election as the organization’s vice president. Another important item on the agenda will be a draft resolution submitted jointly by Hungary’s ruling Fidesz and Slovenia’s SDS party on Europe’s demographic situation, which builds on the closing statement of last month’s Demographic Summit in Budapest. The draft resolution highlights the importance of measures aimed at strengthening the traditional family model, emphasizes the need to keep family policy a national competence and underlines that migration cannot be used as a solution to demographic problems.
