The leader of opposition party Democratic Coalition (DK) and former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány said in a statement that “…it is in Europe’s interest for the President of the United States to see a strong ally in Europe, not an enemy to weaken.” He added that as U.S. citizens will enter polling stations on November 3rd to elect the U.S. president for the 59th time, it is in the interest of Europe, including Hungary, for Joe Biden to be the next President of the United States.
According to Gyurcsány, while the decision is the exclusive right of U.S. citizens, the consequences of the decision will have a strong impact on the entire world, including the European Union, and Hungary. It is in Europe’s interest for the U.S. to work to strengthen, not weaken the most successful military alliance in world history – NATO -, as well as solidarity in our increasingly insecure world.

He added that it is in Europe’s interest for the U.S. President and government to play a leading role in the world in a spirit of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law, rather than embracing dictators and autocrats and giving them international legitimacy.
As Gyurcsány wrote, what is in the interest of Europe is also in the interest of Hungary, and what is in the interest of Hungary is also represented by the Democratic Coalition. “That’s why the Democratic Coalition is pushing for Joe Biden to be the next president of the United States as a result of the decision of Americans,” he said.
At the same time, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has repeatedly indicated that he would welcome the re-election of Donald Trump.
