Last quote about Fidesz

Natalie Nougayrède
From Turkey to China, strongmen rewrite the past to suit their ends. But democracies are not immune to this revisionism.

All this seems like a co-ordinated attack not just on academic freedom but on freedom of association, and, finally, on democratic

All we are doing is protecting the rights of Hungarian citizens advocating for the wider participation in public affairs, but this is something that seems to be very threatening to the

Attila Juhász

This is a long-form strategy that they (Fidesz) want to maintain until the elections, so it is much more difficult to backtrack on this. This is not just about CEU, this all fits into the campaign against Soros. This is part of the political ideology that is a foundation stone of Orban's system - national interests against foreign

The Olympics is a great thing, so we can organise it in 2036 if you want but we have to use this money for other purposes. It is ridiculous that they didn't ask the people. This is a mega project in Hungary, and they just forgot about the people. It seems (like) it is going to be a Fidesz Olympics and not the Olympics of

Fidesz' support goes up when the debate is about migration, it goes down when it's about other issues. It is vital for Fidesz to keep the migration issue on the

Attila Juhász

From an international point of view this result is definitely a failure for Viktor Orbán, an invalid referendum is unlikely to put pressure on the European Union, nobody will take this

Zoltan Kovacs

We are not targeting a particular group of refugees. However, the Orbán government differs sharply from some other European governments. We do not look to immigration as a source of cheap labour or a solution to demographic

Following recent events in Egypt the president's European tour shows he wants to build bridges, but there is a long road ahead… after their talks the two leaders did not mention issues like the death penalty, and journalists were not allowed to ask

Jobbik has a role to play that Fidesz and the socialists are not doing. And that is a dangerous game. Because this is very very much like other right wing parties in the past had risen. And then once they got in power, changed

One more important point to the motivations of the Fidesz government to come up with this new citizenship law was the approaching 2014 elections. It was easily predictable that Fidesz can gain votes from ethnic Hungarians who freshly-obtained citizenship thanks to

What is your take on the new electoral law? From now on, will it be an easy ride for Fidesz or is the new system a double-edged sword?feedback

We find what Jobbik says unacceptable. I hope they don't want to shut Hungarian citizens up in concentration camps. The worst thing is that the Fidesz government has not distanced itself from Jobbik's xenophobic platform. It

Parties made their final campaign statements. Orbán spoke in Hero's Square.
