Orbán’s victory speech and first interview

 

I never thought this would be possible but it seems PM Orban’s Fidesz-KDNP has won the third supermajority (two thirds of the seats)!  It’s a huge victory indeed.

Orbán’s victory speech was succinct. He simply thanked the Hungarian voters for the very high turnout, he thanked his supporters, the party activists’ work and his wife personally. Then he said “Soli Deo gloria” (“Glory to God alone” in Latin).   (Yes, he is Protestant).

He gave an interview to Echo TV shortly after the speech:

We’re not against Europe and the European Union. We do want Europe and we do want the European Union. We want a successful and strong European Union.  To this end, we must speak up first and we must tell everything frankly what we don’t like.. …

Hungary doesn’t want to commit those mistakes which other countries, richer and more powerful than us, have committed.  We don’t want Europe to be ruined because of these mistakes. We want to rectify these mistakes.  Hungary, with her full weight, is ready to take part in this common European work.”
