The executive committee of the Centrist Democratic International (CDI) has condemned cooperation by several European left-liberal parties with the far right which challenges “fundamental rights and the rule of law”, Zsolt Németh, the head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee, said in Brussels. The Christian political international said this type of cooperation was emerging in Hungary and Serbia and was associated with “racism, anti-Semitism, and xenophobia”, Németh said, mentioning Hungary’s Jobbik and Serbia’s Dveri parties as examples. “The party alliance condemned Jobbik for its leader’s call to list Jewish members in the Hungarian parliament and government,” Németh said. CDI has called on all political forces to declare zero tolerance for any manifestations of segregation, racism, anti-Semitism or any form of extremism, Németh said.
