Jobbik: ‘Fidesz carrying out population replacement’

Ruling Fidesz is carrying out "a population replacement" programme by bringing foreign guest workers to Hungary, the leader of the opposition Jobbik-Conservatives party said on Wednesday.

“Fidesz has been deceiving Hungarians with the message for years that some hidden powers are preparing to carry out a replacement of the European population,” Marton Gyongyosi, a party MEP, told a press conference. “But it has turned out that Fidesz itself wants to load 500,000 guest workers onto Hungarian society,” he said, adding that they would mostly be intended to work in Chinese-owned battery plants for wages and under conditions Hungarian workers would not accept. In the meantime, hundreds of thousands of young Hungarians are leaving the country seeking better quality education or a workplace that gives them more respect, Gyongyosi said.

Jobbik rejects all forms of migration, be it Brussels’ quota system for resettling migrants to Hungary or Fidesz’s plan to settle migrant workers in Hungary, he said.

On another topic, Gyongyosi was asked about the 506 million forints (EUR 1.3m) received in foreign campaign donations by Budapest Mayor Gergely Karacsony’s movement for last year’s general election. He said he had asked in an open letter Karacsony as well as Peter Marki-Zay, the prime minister candidate of the united opposition, for clarification of “what exactly happened”. “We cannot accept that Jobbik be punished for monies of which we have not seen a single penny,” he said.
