This is how Jobbik is going to govern Hungary

In their joint press conference in Budapest, Ádám Mirkóczki and Dániel Z. Kárpát asserted that Jobbik was ready to take over government and most citizens considered the party as a force to potentially replace the government with its PM candidate and clear principles determining how it would lead Hungary after 2018.

Jobbik’s spokesman Ádám Mirkóczki added that the party’s conference renewed the mandate of the party’s supervisory board, i.e., László Zakó, Csaba Gyüre and Levente Murányi, and party director Gábor Szabó was confirmed in his position with an outstanding majority.

As it has already been reported: Gábor Vona was elected by the conference as Prime Minister Candidate with 97 per cent of the votes. The delegates also adopted a declaration on the guidelines for Jobbik’s current and future political agenda.

Talking about the declaration, Mr Z. Kárpát called the adopted document an outstanding element in the past 27 years because it clearly indicated that Jobbik was not aiming for a showdown. “When Jobbik gets into government, we won’t try to replace entire groups of our society on a political basis. Instead, we want to represent all layers of the society and all Hungarian people,” said Mr Z. Kárpát, adding that half of our population cannot be suppressed on a political basis and Jobbik had no such intentions in case it gets into power.

Jobbik’s MP identified the development of a production-boosting tax system as a key theoretical and practical goal because it would help our national economy get back on its feet. Mr Z. Kárpát emphasized that the anti-corruption fight would be a top priority since “institutionalized corruption has risen from a government-tolerated activity to government-induced one”. Hungary’s national economy is marred by pervasive corruption “as a plague”.

He added that Jobbik’s initiative for a European wage union aimed to reduce the gap between western and Hungarian wages, which obviously could not be realized overnight but it could be the first step in eliminating wage inequalities and stopping the brain drain.
