Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, in Slovenia on Friday campaigning alongside the Democratic Party of Slovenia, released a video message on Facebook, saying Europe’s future and its values were at stake in Sunday’s European Parliament elections. Orbán said the main issue ahead of the election was whether or not a Europe of Christian values and Europe’s identity and culture would be preserved. “Neither Slovenes nor Hungarians want illegal migration,” he said. “What we want is strict border protection and security.” The prime minister declared that he had been a long-standing friend of Slovenian conservative leader Milan Zver, who tops his party’s EP list. He said that hopefully in Hungary, just as in Slovenia, people would “believe in the family, in Christian culture and in the strength of our nation.” He urged them to protect these values on May 26.
