Jobbik urges investigation into Fidesz’s 2010 campaign spending

The radical nationalist Jobbik party has suggested that a parliamentary committee should be set up to look into the governiing Fidesz party’s spending during the campaign ahead of the 2010 election. Jobbik’s group leader János Volner told a press conference that commercial broadcaster Hír TV had not invoiced Fidesz for any of its advertisements in the campaign, which “raises suspicion of illegal party financing and tax fraud”. Volner said that the committee should reveal “how much financial support Fidesz had received”, from what sources, and if the alleged financing had an influence on the outcome of the election.

    Really? Calling for an investigation about the 2010 elections in 2017?! Do Hungarians want politicians who are slower than asthmatic snails?
