ORBÁN CALLS ON FARMERS TO VOTE FOR FIDESZ

 

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on Thursday called on Hungarian farmers to vote for the ruling alliance of Fidesz and the Christian Democrats in this weekend’s European Parliament elections. Addressing a farm machinery expo organised by the National Agriculture Chamber (NAK) and the National Association of Farm Machinery and Equipment Sellers (Megfosz) in Mezőfalva, in central Hungary, Orbán urged farmers to “say no to migration” on Sunday. The prime minister said Brussels was planning to cut funding for farmers and spend the money it would save on supporting migrants. “This must be prevented,” he said, adding that the MEP candidates of Fidesz and the Christian Democrats were capable of stopping migration and protecting the interests of Hungarians in Brussels
