Political director: Brussels ‘no longer capital of freedom’

Change is needed in Brussels because the EU "is no longer the capital of freedom but a tool of left-progressive-liberal oppression", the prime minister's political director said in Brussels on Tuesday.

On the sidelines of the National Conservatism Conference, Balazs Orban told Hungarian journalists that national conservative forces were “fed up with the Brussels super state” and the “failed policies of the Brussels leadership” which had sent Europe into a downward spiral.

National conservatives, he said, rejected pro-migration positions and wanted to live in a Europe of freedom and nations in which the bloc was also able to protect its own borders, he said, adding that the EU should be a “peace project again” rather than a “war project”.

The political director said “the authorities and violent far-left antifa groups” had made it impossible to hold the conference in several locations, which he said was “astounding”.

“The sovereigntist, anti-immigration and pro-peace forces cannot be silenced,” he added. He said the European Parliament elections on June 9 could bring about the change, and candidates of the Hungarian government side would “fight for the country’s interests” and make Hungarian voices heard in Brussels.
