FIDESZ: LEFT WING SIDING WITH BRUSSELS, LGBT ACTIVISTS

 

Hungary’s left wing has sided with Brussels and LGBT activists, ruling Fidesz said on Wednesday in response to the leftist parties’ reactions to the prime minister’s announcement of a planned referendum on child protection. “Brussels is abusing its powers and threatening Hungary only because Hungarian laws have forbidden sexual propaganda in kindergartens, at school, on the television screen and in advertisements,” Fidesz said in a statement. The left wing, however, has sided with Brussels, as it did in the case of migration, it said, adding that the “Brussels bureaucrats and Soros organisations” saw it as an insult that LGBT activists “are no longer allowed to get close to children in Hungary”. The Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance supports holding a referendum on the child protection law and will continue to take a firm stand in defence of children, the statement said.
