Orban: Migrants would make Budapest unrecognisable

Budapest is among the world’s safest cities but that could easily change if voters make the wrong choice in Sunday’s election, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in Budapest on Wednesday.

Orban gave warning that the city could become “unrecognisable” if the Fidesz government were not reelected.

He said Budapest was a good place to raise children and for families to live in safety, but “in the cities of immigrant countries this is not the case”.

“Whoever votes for the opposition on Sunday” chooses “a path to an immigrant country,” he said.

The prime minister added:

“We will keep Budapest a beautiful, exciting and safe city.”

Orban said Budapest would be the first port of call for migrants. The mass gathering of migrants three years ago at Keleti railway station should never again be allowed to happen, he said, adding that the fence on the southern border protected Budapest foremost.

Speaking at the same event at the National University of Public Administration, Budapest Mayor Istvan Tarlos said Budapest was now a far better city than eight years ago. Tarlos also listed the major developments carried out in Budapest over the past eight years with government support.
