ORBAN WINS BIGGER THAN EU ELITE’S WORST NIGHTMARE
ANOTHER BIG BLOW DEALT TO EU ELITE AS HUNGARY REJECTS EU DOMINATION
Yesterday saw yet another blow against Brussels, as the Hungarian people turned out in record numbers in their general election to give a record third term to Viktor Orban’s Fidesz coalition.
With a majority of which other EU leaders can only dream, Mr Orban’s coalition romped home with two-thirds of the parliamentary seats. With 98.5% of all votes having been counted at 01.57am Monday, when this article is starting to be written, the result is unlikely to change except in very minor details.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s ruling alliance of FIDESZ-KDNP made history yesterday by becoming the first party in Hungary to win three consecutive terms. The government has been composed of Fidesz and their Christian Democrat ally, the KDNP. The new government will have two-thirds of the seats in the Hungarian parliament.
In a jubilant victory speech to supporters in the capital Budapest, just before midnight last night, the prime minister said:
“A great battle is behind us. We’ve won a decisive victory. We created the possibility for ourselves to protect Hungary.
“Today, Hungary won a great victory. I congratulate the electors. The high turn-out left no room for doubt.” Looking ahead he added that “Our home is not yet standing where it should, but together we will fight.”
The latter comment was no doubt directed at Brussels, where moves have been made against Hungary and other Visegrad countries as a result of their repudiation of the EU’s immigrant quota dictat.
