Hungarian PM envisions new attacks in 2017

February 10, 2017

In his annual 'state of the nation' speech, delivered traditionally in front of his followers, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said Hungary’s main task in 2017 would be fending off five major 'attacks' against the country. In reaction, opposition parties voiced criticism by saying that the Prime Minister failed to address the country’s real problems.

Viktor Orbán claimed that Brussels would prohibit government mandated utility price cuts; "foreign entities" would gain influence in the country; organisations supported by Hungarian-born American financier George Soros work to bring masses of immigrants to Europe; the EU would take away economic competencies from the member states in the field of tax policy and job creation.

What the opposition missed from the speech was the mention of the ever growing corruption, the profit people close to the governing parties make on decreasing global energy prices and the poor state of education and healthcare in Hungary.
