Mi Hazánk, MIÉP Sign Cooperation Agreement

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.02.21.

The non-parliamentary radical nationalist parties Mi Hazánk and the Hungarian Justice and Life Party (MIÉP) signed a cooperation agreement on Wednesday.

Mi Hazánk leader László Toroczkai told a press conference after the signing ceremony that the alliance would seek to “offer a third path to those who decline to identify with (ruling) Fidesz or the left-liberal bloc”.

MIÉP leader Tibor Nagy said that signing the alliance was “an important step towards saving the country and Hungarians in the Carpathian Basin”.

Anwering a question, Toroczkai said that Mi Hazánk would soon sign a similar cooperation agreement with the Independent Smallholders’ Party.

Radical nationalist MIÉP was founded in 1993 to become an opposition parliamentary party for a four-year term in 1998. Mi Hazánk split from the conservative Jobbik last year.
