Péter Márki-Zay talked about the fact that in four years the opposition parties understood that they had to unite. Six parties start in full unity, have a common list with three Roma representatives on it, and have a wonderful program, he said.
According to the candidate for prime minister, only
“brainwashed, guided, misled miserable” people can believe that someone will run in an election program to take a pension, abolish the minimum wage, reschedule preschool children and send our “children” to die in Ukraine. Viktor Orbán is lying, if Fidesz were not in big trouble, he would not have to attack with “such pathetic (…) lies”
he pointed out.
He stressed that their program is to make the minimum wage tax-free, create a real child protection law, and double the gesture, family allowance, home care allowance and old-age minimum pension.
Péter Márki-Zay emphasized that if they go to government, they do not want to make public health care payable, but also make private health care free of charge if necessary. He added, they will introduce the euro, but in the meantime they will curb inflation.
He specifically emphasized that
the border fence will be maintained, the EU border guard will be brought to Hungary, while an independent border guard will be set up and the “tens of thousands of migrants admitted by Fidesz” will be screened.
He called one of the most important elements of their program that Hungary will no longer be a country without consequences. There will be accountability, as a first step Hungary will join the European Public Prosecutor’s Office, the Prime Minister-designate has declared.
He promised to elevate all Hungarian Gypsies and help the most deprived.
Péter Márki-Zay emphasized that according to their research, they are side by side with the governing parties, so every single vote can decide the fight. The politician said he sincerely believes in victory and his faith is given by young people because they will convince their parents and then their grandparents that
replace “the most corrupt government in Hungary’s millennial history.”
At the same time, the prime minister asked his students to convince one or two more people by Sunday.
Turning to another topic, he argued that Viktor Orbán had “become a disgrace in Europe,” the prime minister could not count on the support of NATO, without which the country could not be defended. The current head of government is “constantly lying” about the war in Ukraine, changing his views four times in two weeks about whether NATO troops can come to Hungary and accusing the opposition of “the most pathetic lie,” he said.
Péter Márki-Zay stated that the Prime Minister had betrayed the nation, NATO, Europe and the Hungarians of Transcarpathia.
Viktor Orbán is a “traitor”, a decent Hungarian man cannot vote for a traitor
he pointed out.
He concluded by saying that on Sunday “together we can regain their national pride, let the whole world be proud to say I am Hungarian again”.
Speaking at the event, Mayor Gergely Karácsony spoke about the need to reunite the country, noting that now the opposition can show that “Orbán is not equal to Hungary”.
As a former prime ministerial candidate, he stated that Péter Márki-Zay has the best chance of defeating the current head of government and leading the country out of the moral, economic and spiritual crisis that Viktor Orbán’s government has brought.
He emphasized that what the opposition is advertising is the program of a democratic, solidary, green, European Hungary, which does not formulate the nation and Europe, the countryside and the capital, not against each other.
According to Gergely Christmas
“Putin’s vile war has sent Orban’s 12-year policy to the rubbish heap of history,” now we have to choose between the good and the bad of history, and “we can’t stay with Viktor Orban on the dark side.”
He emphasized that instead of dictatorships in the East, we must belong to the West, we must serve peace.
Musician András Hajós has encouraged young people to support the opposition, saying they could prevent us from reaching Russia’s fate because of its supremacy.
Pastor Gábor Iványi emphasized:
“no one can rest assured that they should not,” and after the election victory, the internal and external order of the country must be restored, as “we want to be one of the fairly cultured peoples again.”
He also stated that “with his hands on his heart” he says they also want to fight for Ukraine’s freedom. He also stressed that “no other aspect, no overhead reduction, no other cowardly, selfish considerations should prevent us from always doing the truth.”
The candidates for the parliamentary assembly of the opposition coalition in Budapest took the stage, talking about the developments affecting their constituency, emphasizing the importance of the necessary change of government.
