CHRISTDEMS: CHRISTIAN DEMOCRACY CRUCIAL FOR EUROPE'S FUTURE

 

Preserving Europe’s Christian roots and the character of its nation states “is not possible without Christian Democratic foundations”, leaders of Hungary’s co-ruling KDNP said at the party’s national board meeting.

Christian Democrat leader and deputy PM Zsolt Semjén said that his party was to “ensure stable ideological foundations, a link to Christian Democratic ideals for the governing [Fidesz-KDNP] alliance”.

János Latorcai, the head of the party’s national board, said that the success of Christian policy-making lay largely in personal credibility. “We need to be able to reach out to all people for whom Christian cultural values and the future of European nations are important,” he insisted.

The board meeting was attended by nearly 300 delegates.
