Hungary’s radical nationalist Mi Hazánk party offers a “third option” apart from ruling Fidesz and the leftist parties “now united under [Democratic Coalition leader] Ferenc Gyurcsány”, Dóra Dúró, deputy leader of the far-right party, said on Monday.
Mi Hazánk rejects both “nepotic” Fidesz and the “left-liberal bloc” and will run candidates in all 106 constituencies of the country, Dúró said.
Dúró accused Jobbik, Momentum, and LMP of “giving up their opposition to the policies of the past 30 years” and insisted that “they are working to help to power” ex-PM Gyurcsány, whom they “would have earlier banned from politics”. Jobbik “now considers Gyurcsány a brother-in-arms rather than a traitor”, while LMP is “at peace with Gyurcsány, who would lie in the morning, in the evening, and at night”.
Mi Hazánk seeks to eliminate the immunity of members of parliament, it would make voting rights conditional on literacy, promote segregation at school and would reintroduce mandatory military service.
Mi Hazánk would also call a referendum on Hungary’s EU membership in 2030, ban “homosexual propaganda” from schools, levy an asset tax on the rich, eliminate Roma integration programmes and “scrap the Trianon diktat”, she said.
