The non-parliamentary Mi Hazánk party has selected party chief László Toroczkai as its candidate for prime minister in next year’s general election, Dóra Dúró, deputy leader of the far-right party, told a press conference on Monday.
Mi Hazánk will field a candidate of its own in all 106 constituencies to demonstrate its “opposition to the policies of the past 30 years, of wasting national assets and waning national sovereignty,” Dúró said. She insisted that “the left-liberal government would cause a quick death for Hungary while the incumbent Fidesz government would cause a slow death.”
Both Fidesz and the left-liberals “represent the same paralytic stance” which would lead to “the rich getting richer and the poor becoming even poorer”, she added.
Mi Hazánk advocates lifting the immunity of members of parliament, linking voting rights to literacy, segregation at school, a referendum on Hungary’s EU membership, banning “homosexual propaganda” at school, and annulling the Trianon peace treaty, she said.
