With next May’s European elections approaching, the Hungarian Prime Minister is seemingly intent on presenting himself as the leader of Europe’s populist and nationalist right.

“In addition to its economic growth and all its specificities, Central Europe is a region which also has a special culture. It is different from Western Europe. In order that Central Europe can occupy the place in Europe that it deserves, it is worth clarifying a few tenets.

  1. Every European country has the right to defend its Christian culture, and the right to reject the ideology of multiculturalism.
  2. Every country has the right to defend the traditional family model, and is entitled to assert that every child has the right to a mother and a father.
  3. Every Central European country has the right to defend the nationally strategic economic sectors and markets which are of crucial importance to it.
  4. Every country has the right to defend its borders, and it has the right to reject immigration.
  5. Every European country has the right to insist on the principle of one nation, one vote on the most important issues, and that this right must not be denied in the European Union.

“ In other words, we Central Europeans claim that there is life beyond globalism, which is not the only path. Central Europe’s path is the path of an alliance of free nations."

The 2019 European Parliament elections

"The time has indeed come for the European elections to be about the issue of immigration, and the future related to it.

The upcoming elections are therefore of the utmost importance. In these elections we must demonstrate that there is an alternative to liberal democracy: it is called Christian democracy. And we must show that the liberal elite can be replaced with a Christian democratic elite. Christian democracy is not about defending religious articles of faith. Christian democratic politics means that the ways of life springing from Christian culture must be protected: These include human dignity, the family and the nation.

Christian democracy is, by definition, not liberal: it is, illiberal. Liberal democracy is in favour of multiculturalism, while Christian democracy gives priority to Christian culture; this is an illiberal concept. Liberal democracy is pro-immigration, while Christian democracy is anti-immigration; this is again a genuinely illiberal concept. And liberal democracy sides with adaptable family models, while Christian democracy rests on the foundations of the Christian family model; once more, this is an illiberal concept."
