The ruling Fidesz party has so far collected the signatures of over 600,000 supporters in its campaign ahead of the European parliamentary elections, communications director Balázs Hidvéghi told public television M1 on Monday morning.
“We must stop migration and protect the rights of nation states… we need to build a Europe based on the cooperation of nation states,” Hidvéghi said, adding that “we need a Europe of nations, that is Fidesz’s programme”.
