Parties with a strong, right wing, Christian Democratic conservative agenda that had been most sharply “attacked” had cleared the ballot with the best results, Gergely Gulyas, the head of the Hungarian Prime Minister’s Office said at the summer university in Baile Tusnad (Tusnadfurdo), central Romania, on Friday.
Hungary’s ruling Fidesz had gained the best result among parties in the European People’s Party group, Gergely Gulyas said. He told the forum that the incumbent Hungarian government had the strongest support possible in a democracy, adding that the opposition was “in a state of crisis”.
British author Douglas Murray was also invited to the summer university. Murray told the Hungarian public media that EU member states should have to right to decide about their own future, including their migration policies. He reminded that the EU was irresponsible in its approach towards external border control, the member states left Italy and Greece alone. Germany made completely unilateral decisions, disregarding the concerns of other countries, including Hungary.
According to Murray, the future of the member states depends on their national policies, it can be completely different, based on their governments and decisions. The future of Denmark and Sweden, France and Hungary will be different, because their governments make different decisions, he explained. Murray stressed that when it comes to migration, Europeans shouldn’t be heartless, but they must understand that it’s not possible to save the whole world by inviting everyone to the continent.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban will give a lecture on Saturday on the big stage together with Laszlo Tokes, head of the Transylvanian Hungarian National Council. Fidesz lawmaker Zsolt Nemeth, the event’s founder and chairman of the Hungarian parliament’s foreign affairs committee, will moderate.
