Ruling political party Fidesz is trying to convince Hungarians that the united democratic coalition is pro-migrant, stated democratic leader Péter Márki-Zay. And yet it is Fidesz itself, he said, that has brought wanted criminals and Islamist terrorists to Hungary, adding that all those in the government party who have gotten rich on migration will be held to account for their actions.

Márki-Zay spoke on his Facebook page Sunday evening, touching on several topics related to the election campaign and discussing his positions on recent affairs.

Regarding a possible visit to ethnic Hungarians in Transylvania, the mayor of Hódmezővásárhely stated that he had wanted to meet with leaders of ethnic Hungarian settlements in the area, but had to cancel the trip because of the worsening pandemic.

The mayor also claimed that his political opponents are attempting to scare the ethnic Hungarian minority abroad by strongly associating him with former Socialist Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány. Premier Viktor Orbán doesn’t really care about ethnic minority issues, he believes, but only wants their vote.

Márki-Zay also encouraged everyone to use facemasks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, adding that the government is trying to avoid responsibility over the question of vaccine mandates at the workplace by leaving the decision to individual employers.

“I’m not a fan of mandatory vaccination,” the democratic leader stated, “but there are some cases in which it is unavoidable.”
