Jobbik chairman Gábor Vona is the far-right party’s candidate for prime minister, while MEP Krisztina Morvai will be asked to accept nomination for the post of President at next year’s parliamentary elections, spokeswoman Dóra Dúró announced on Thursday.
The party’s minimal goal is to beat the Socialists in the elections, as “they are unfit to represent Hungarian interests,” Vona said.
Anyone who thinks that Hungary has proceeded well in the past 20 years can vote for the present parliamentary parties, but those who think otherwise and seek radical change, should find MPs outside Parliament, Vona declared.
At stake, he went on, is whether Hungary will remain a nation for Hungarians and preserve its natural resources “or whether it will be run by others”.
The party will release its election platform on January 16, whose only criterion will be to represent the interests of Hungarian people, said Vona.
