Hungary’s conservative-populist premier Viktor Orbán has won a third term in office in a landslide election victory.
Ten days ago, I advised “Keep an Eye on Hungary’s Election.” President Viktor Orban stood up against the European Union’s open-borders plan to flood the continent with Muslim “refugees.” He was targeted for defeat by left-wing activists funded by George Soros. Orban didn’t back down. Instead, he told the truth about the “invasion” of Europe and called out Soros by name. Voters just re-elected him by landslide:
Hungary’s conservative-populist premier Viktor Orbán has won a third term in office in a landslide election victory. With 85 per cent of the votes counted, Europe Elects is sharing stats which suggest Fidesz, the party founded by Prime Minister Orbán while he was a young anti-Communist dissident, has won 134 seats, along with his coalition partners — which would give him with not merely a decisive majority but an outright super-majority, allowing changes to the national constitution. . . . The results will be extremely disappointing for top bureaucrats in the European Union and activists working for so-called civil society NGOs funded by billionaire open borders campaigner George Soros, who had been hoping for an upset defeat, or for Fisesz to lose its super-majority, at least. Prime Minister Orbán has been the most determined foe of the compulsory migrant quota regime the EU has attempted to impose at the behest of pro-migration NGOs, and served as the focal point for an increasingly influential eurosceptic, anti-mass migration bloc within the EU centred on the Visegrád Four countries.
Orban supporters celebrate the election victory.
“We have won.” With these three words Viktor Orbán began to address the crowds outside Fidesz headquarters. He starts by congratulating the voters for turning out to vote. “Thank you for having placed your faith in us; thank you for having stuck with us.” Viktor Orbán continues by thanking “all the people who prayed for us and prayed for me personally”. Also on the list of thanks are the party volunteers and his wife. He says we now have a major battle behind us. “This has been a decisive win… in the future we are going to be able to defend our mother country.” Orbán is leading the crowd in song — it is the anthem of the revolution from 1848, Euronews says. He finishes by saying “long live Hungary, thank you for everything.”
Gosh, it’s as if standing up for your country is popular, or something.
