Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said the Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance achieved its all-time best result in Sunday's general election.
Addressing an international press conference, PM Orbán said the governing parties continue to trust in the concept of the nation state and see Hungary’s future in the European Union and NATO. Concerning the Russia-Ukraine war, PM Orbán said he had consulted with Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier today and asked him to apply immediate ceasefire. He said his Fidesz party’s victory were attributable to voters supporting the political force that provided a bigger guarantee for peace, Hungary’s economic achievements, and the opposition’s being a “coalition for power” which is basically a “disrespectful approach” to the electorate. The ruling alliance, in turn, represented a “programme of heart and passion” in the election campaign, he said. “We continue to see our future in the European Union and want to play an active role in shaping the European Union of the future,” PM Orbán said. “We are a NATO member state, we will remain one, and we want to build a much stronger military, which will also strengthen NATO,” PM Orbán said.
