After losing the election for president of Jobbik at yesterday’s party congress, János Stummer posted the speech he gave at the event on social media, which wasn’t very complimentary of the job done so far by re-elected Jobbik President Péter Jakab:
At the beginning of this speech, it is worth asking who the other presidential candidate is besides me at this congress, because it is not Péter Jakab. Dear Peter, we can say that over the past two years, it was not you leading, and not you directing this party. Four years ago, you wrote to me that you can speak, but you can’t lead, and the past two years have borne out your statement. You have spoken, but others have led and directed instead of you.
-wrote the former head of the parliamentary National Security Committee.
Stummer believes that the party should start by saying openly, honestly, and directly that they are in very big trouble.
The politician added that he believes Jobbik needs to return to the “national path,” and also change the internal functioning of the party. “There is a bad atmosphere, dark rooms, threats, retaliation, and fear in many people now. But it wasn’t always this way,” wrote János Stummer. [HVG]
