There exists a difference of values between Hungary’s radical nationalist Jobbik party and governing Fidesz, Jobbik leader Gabor Vona told a forum organised by the festival Magyar Sziget in Veroce, N Hungary, on Thursday.
Vona said the word “radical” refers to construction rather than violence and destruction. He said in response to a question about possible collaboration between Fidesz and Jobbik that this would be a “false effort” and would be practically impossible to find a joint platform for the two parties.
Fidesz and Jobbik do not see eye to eye regarding economic and social policy or issues of the European Union, Vona said, adding that still, the biggest difference between them was one of values.
“Jobbik sees the world going through a crisis, where people have lost direction and values,” he said.
