Jobbik proclaims national resistance

Jobbik held its 20th national congress in Budapest on Saturday morning. The delegates of the party unanimously adopted the Proclamation of National Resistance.

“The conference disproved any allegations about Jobbik’s weakening positions,” Márton Gyöngyösi announced in his press conference after the event. In his words, “the party is strong, stable and growing”. Then he explained the four main items on the agenda beside the adoption of the proclamation: organizational restructuring, the work of the parliamentary faction as well as the preparation for the municipal and the EP elections. Answering questions from the media, Jobbik’s spokesman Péter Jakab asserted that the issue of political alliances had only been discussed to the point that any cooperation with Ferenc Gyurcsány and Viktor Orbán was unimaginable. The executive vice president identified migration, emigration and autonomy as the key issues for the EP elections.

Jobbik’s president Tamás Sneider called the proclamation’s unanimous adoption by 100 per cent of the delegates a milestone in the life of the party. He emphasized that the text contained the foundations of Jobbik’s identity and goals. Mr Sneider also announced that Jobbik proclaimed resistance against the so-called System of National Cooperation. He identified three key areas which, in his view, required urgent intervention. The first one is the demographic disaster. He described the dire situation by pointing out that, out of all administrations so far, the number of births was the lowest under the current “family-friendly government”. The second issue concerns the situation of businesses. As he explained, we must put an end to the practice when “HUF hundred and thousand billions are transferred into the hands of certain businessman through family and friendship ties”. Finally, he focused on the moral status of our society. As he put it, the Hungarian people were “engulfed by servilism” and Jobbik’s job was to eliminate it so that “we could be a proud and confident Hungarian nation”. Mr Sneider emphasized that Jobbik was going to show an example of courage, dedication and honesty.

Alfahir was informed that the delegates were given an insight into the party’s financial status as well, including the fact that Jobbik had turned to the international court of justice on account of the fine imposed by the State Audit Office of Hungary, and the Strasbourg court decided to look into the case.

The Gergely Pongrátz Cross of Merit was also awarded at the conference. This year’s awards were given to János Szigeti Tóth and Ferenc Mátyás.
