RADICAL NATIONALISTS CALL ON MPS WHO REFUSE PARLIAMENTARY WORK TO RETURN MANDATES

 

Radical nationalist Mi Hazánk (Our Homeland) on Monday called on lawmakers who believe working in parliament is useless and refuse to participate in it to return their mandates. Party representative Dóra Dúró, who sits in parliament as an independent, told a press conference that lawmakers are still expected primarily to work in parliament and street politics are for activists who do not hold mandates. The politicians of Mi Hazánk will continue to represent voters on both platforms, she added. Dúró called on fellow lawmakers to properly fulfil their duties. In response to a question, Dúró said before the government can be replaced, the “opposition will need to be replaced first”. The “united left-liberal block” lacks the attitude required for replacing the government, she added. Opposition MPs walked out of parliament’s first 2019 sitting on Monday in protest of what they described as a “propaganda day”.
