Speaker expects opposition to bring a "dirtier, meaner campaign"
Kover: Hungary’s future hinges on 2022 election winner
Kover said he would gladly continue the “campaign of results” in the run-up to the election, pointing to “successes of which the government can be proud” in the areas of economic policy, employment, family policy and demographic policy.
While the government explains the decisions it took and why, Kover said he expected the opposition to bring a “dirtier, meaner campaign”.
He added that social media would have a significance in the 2022 election as in none other before.
Kover said he spoke with his Chinese counterpart Li Zhanshu online earlier in the day, adding that Hungary’s order for 5 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine from China could mean a breakthrough in the fight against the pandemic.
He said the opposition had not contributed to the pandemic defense in Hungary “even as a gesture”. He added that left-wing parties are supporting vaccination in a manner that undermines confidence in the very vaccines which Hungary has at its disposal in large number.
