Quote of the Day

“If I weren’t afraid of the expression itself, I’d say it’s a cold civil war election situation, where of course there is no shooting, but what the participants say is like they’re really standing on opposite sides of the barricade.”

Analyst and commentator Gábor Török on the upcoming general election in Hungary on April 6, 2014.

Editor's note: This quote illustrates how polarized Hungarian society has become in terms of the current political situation. There are those who support the left-wing parties in Hungary that still yearn for the good old "Goulash Communist" days. Many in left-wing Hungarian parties today are former card-carrying communist party members. The Hungarian Socialist Party is actually the inheritor of the Hungarian Socialist Workers' Party (1956-1989). 

It is a well-known fact that the left-wing parties in Hungary are receiving financial support from foreign interests/bodies. The supporters of the left-wing in Hungary are generally pro-European Union and globalist-friendly in nature. On the other side, the right-wing parties in Hungary are usually anti-European Union, pro-Hungarian and pro-Christian. 

The latest polls project that the right-wing parties will make large gains and that the ruling conservative Fidesz party will win another term in office comfortably. This support shows that the Hungarian people are fed up with the same old politics and antics of the left which continues to work against the national interest.
