Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, reflecting on his Fidesz party’s European Parliament victory, said that with the high turnout Hungary had proven that “it is a European nation, a European country; that our place is in Europe, that Europe is our home, too, and so we want to change it.” The prime minister expressed his gratitude to his party’s voters and supporters. He called the election a “big, one-time-only chance to unify the nation”, arguing that ethnic Hungarian communities “will also be there with us in Brussels and we will be representing the interests of the entire Hungarian nation together”. “For us, Hungary will come first in Brussels, too, and we will cooperate with everyone who wants to stop immigration,” Orbán said. “Today we showed that Hungary is strong because Hungarians are united. In the years ahead, the aim will be to preserve this grand unity. I promise you that we will do everything we can to achieve this,” the prime minister concluded.
