Ungarns statsminister Viktor Orbán holdt torsdag sin første tale til parlamentet i Budapest etter seieren ved parlamentsvalget i april, og skisserte der noen av regjeringens visjoner for landets vei videre i Orbáns tredje strake periode.

Statsministeren fremholdt at den nye regjeringen vil bygge et kristent demokrati for det 21. århundre, reversere nedgangen i befolkningen og ikke fire i innvandringspolitikken, skriver Reuters:

He reiterated that his new government would build a “Christian democracy”. He promised to boost growth and competitiveness and reverse a decline in Hungary’s native population, while maintaining a tough line on immigration.

“We will oppose the mandatory migrant settlement quotas… and will fight for the protection of borders,” he said.

Tiden for det havarerte liberale demokratiet er over, sa Orbán:

“We have replaced a shipwrecked liberal democracy with a 21st-century Christian democracy, which guarantees people’s freedom, security.”

Uttalelsen er gjengitt noe mer detaljert på den ungarske statsministerens offisielle blogg:

“Rather than try to fix a liberal democracy that has run aground, we will build a 21st Century Christian democracy which guarantees human dignity, freedom and security, protects the equal rights of men and women, the model of the traditional family, puts the brakes on anti-Semitism, protects our Christian culture, and provides opportunity for the maintenance and development of our nation.”

EU må oppgi sine marerittaktige vrangforestillinger om et Europas forente stater, mente Orbán:

“The Union must function as an alliance of free nations and give up on its delusional nightmares of a United States of Europe,” Orban told parliament in his inaugural speech.

“The EU must return to the grounds of reality. As a first step, it must change its thinking about migration.”

Statsministeren fremholdt at Ungarn trenger EU, men unnlot likevel ikke å gjøre selvstendige geopolitiske resonnementer:

Hungary is and will remain a dedicated member of the Western alliance system. But that does not change the geographical constraints,” he said.

“To our west is the land of German iron chancellors, to our east is the world of Slavic soldier peoples, and to our south are massive crowds of Muslim people. Berlin, Moscow, Istanbul – Hungary exists in this space. We need to make calculations based on this.”

Fidesz gjorde et uhyre godt valg, og fikk to tredjedels flertall i parlamentet, men opposisjonen er ikke desto mindre kritisk til regjeringen. Jobbiks nestleder Marton Gyongyosi sa etter statsministerens tale at dagens Ungarn er bygget på korrupsjon og styrt av oligarker.
