Jobbik will develop a new strategy by September to answer the challenges posed by recent changes in the ruling parties’ policies, party leader Tamás Sneider said. The strategy will be announced at a party congress, he added.
Jobbik will continue to develop as a “social nationalist people’s party”, but with a growing emphasis on fundamental freedoms, he said. He said that Jobbik has a particular responsibility as the only opposition party currently above the parliamentary threshold in polls.
A new economic crisis after the elections can bring about “serious waves of unrest” and a growing number of protest groups, he said. The government’s aim is to have a mandate to crack down on such groups, even by resorting to the use of force, Sneider insisted, predicting that protests may start as soon as this autumn.
