March 15: LMP Warns of ‘New Threats’ to Freedom, Independence

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.03.15.

Leaders of the opposition LMP party marked the anniversary of Hungary’s 1848 revolution on Friday, and warned of “new challenges threatening our freedom and independence”.

At a commemoration held in the Castle District, LMP co-leader László Lóránt Keresztes said that “foreign, mainly Russian influence is on the increase, facilitated by the treacherous policies of the (Hungarian) government, which pretends to be patriotic”, and called for setting up a “national” government, which “in fact promotes the interests of the people”.

Márta Demeter, LMP’s other co-leader, insisted that “the freedom of the media and equality before the law are being violated, the national bank is no longer independent, and parliament fails to promote national interests”. She insisted that “the traitors looting from the nation must be removed from power”.
