The ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance has selected Justice Minister Laszlo Trocsanyi to head their list for next year’s European Parliamentary elections, Fidesz announced on Thursday.
Trocsanyi will also be nominated for European commissioner, Balazs Hidveghi, the party’s communications director said.
On the election list, published on Fidesz’s website, Trocsanyi is followed by Jozsef Szajer, Livia Jaroka, Tamas Deutsch, Andras Gyurk, Kinga Gal, Gyorgy Holvenyi, Eniko Gyori, Adam Kosa, Andrea Bocskor, Andor Deli, Balazs Hidveghi, Edina Toth, Istvan Kovacs, Norbert Erdos, Balazs Rakossy, Tamas Schanda, Csaba Farago, Nora Kiraly, Jozsef Ekes and Gergely Losonci. Hidveghi said that “Hungary cannot rely on its opposition” in the European Parliament “in the fight against attempts to import even more migrants to Europe” and insisted that “such candidates are needed that will promote Hungary”.
Rogan: EP elections crucial for Hungary
Next year’s European Parliamentary elections will be “crucial both for Hungary and the European Union”, the prime minister’s cabinet chief said in an interview published in daily Magyar Hirlap on Thursday. In the interview, Antal Rogan said that “George Soros and his circles will do everything they can to maintain the current power relations” and “those countries that are markedly anti-migration will be attacked by all means”. “They seek to destroy the reputation of those countries that have been firmly against migration; that is what Ms Sargentini is doing, an old, reliable ally of George Soros,” Rogan insisted, and stressed that “the situation could be changed” in the ballot next spring.
Concerning Hungary’s recently established administrative courts, Rogan said that “these courts will deal with migration cases” and insisted that “no wonder that they are being attacked by Europe’s pro-migration institutions”. On another subject, Rogan said that recent, anti-government protests involved “violent groups that attacked police” and added that those detained during the demonstrations included “innumerable” people with a police record.
