Fidesz to launch petition against opposition politicians

Ruling Fidesz will launch a petition called "Stop Gyurcsany! Stop Karacsony!" on September 1, the parliamentary group leader of the party said. Mate Kocsis told public broadcaster Kossuth Radio that the campaign is to "remind people that those wanting to come to power [at the 2022 general election] are the same who ruined the country between 2002 and 2010."

The Leftist governments in that period “stripped retirees of one month’s worth of pensions and took away a month’s pay from public servants and teachers”. “Further it forced families to take out loans in foreign denominations, scrapped family tax discounts, closed hospitals and stripped 600 billion forints (EUR 1.7bn) from the health-care system,” Kocsis said.

He insisted that former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany had acquired full control of the left. “So it is wholly irrelevant whether Peter Jakab, Gergely Karacsony or Klara Dobrev will run for prime minister, we are up against Gyurcsany,” he said.

Kocsis said Fidesz expected “constant debates with the European Union and that the European mainstream would issue damning statements because the Brussels elite wants to help the Leftists into power.”

Hungary and the EU “have had run-ins” on the issues of migration and child protection, Kocsis said. “I thought child protection was a shared European value, but it turned out that the unconditional support of LGBTQ propaganda has overtaken that.” Hungary will not budge on its stance on migration either, he said.
