Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said peace and security are now issues in the April 3 general election.
Speaking to public radio on Sunday, the prime minister said that only the ruling Fidesz party can guarantee peace and security in Hungary, adding that the “international dimension” provided an opportunity to “finally talk seriously, honestly and deeply about highly important issues.” The election, he said, would decide Hungary’s fate “for the next four years at the very least”. Also, the referendum on child protection held in parallel would have consequences and significance beyond Hungary at European level, too. PM Orbán said Hungary was “an island of tranquillity” amid “this western gender insanity”. “We’re still taking the traditional family approach,” he said. “The mother is a woman, the father a man, and they should leave our children be." Assessing a European and NATO summit on the war in Ukraine earlier in the week, the prime minister said Hungary’s position had been carbon copied. NATO will not send troops to Ukraine nor transport weapons there, he said, though this did not stop individual member states doing so.
