The prime minister, who is also the ruling party’s leader, said in the letter that the EP election would be the most significant such vote so far. “Having learned nothing after the series of terrorist attacks, Brussels wants to turn Europe into a continent of immigrants and force this on nation states. We Hungarians cannot accept this,” the letter said.
Orbán also insisted that the opposition represented Brussels in Hungary. “What we really need are representatives of Hungary in Brussels,” he wrote, adding that Fidesz MEPs always uncompromisingly represented Hungarian interests in the EP.
The supporters were also asked to make a financial contribution to “ensure Fidesz’s success”. The paper said Fidesz had long made use of micro-funding as an important gauge of its supporter base.
