Orban: EU Elections ‘Will Decide Multicultural Or Christian Future For Europe'
Hungarian PM says Europe will choose between open borders or sovereignty
Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán has noted the explosive clash between pro-borders and pro-sovereignty insurgents as he prepares his party for the coming EU Parliament elections.
Orban, who is a fierce critic of open borders and globalism said that the coming elections would determine which way Europe heads in terms of its culture.
The Hungarian leader also said that the elections in May, which the UK may also have to take part in despite democratically voting for Brexit, will be a fork in the road where “Europe will choose its future.“
“Will Europe remain European or will we give way to the masses coming from other cultures?” he questioned.
“[W]e will decide whether we protect our Christian European culture or give way to multiculturalism.”
In Orbán’s view, the decision will form a comparatively straight choice across all EU member states, falling “between EU leaders from the pro-immigration parties or from those that oppose immigration.”
Orban has been very clear from the start about which side he sits on.
The leader has also made efforts to build relations with Italy’s populist Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini, whose League (Lega) party could become the biggest in the European Parliament.
“Hungarians, who have been protecting Europe for a thousand years, want the EU, but we are fed up with the way things are going in Brussels,” he said.
“We are not willing to do what Brussels dictates if that is not good for Hungarians.”

Last month, Orbán fired back at his globalist pro-EU critics, asserting that there is no place for multiculturalism in Hungary.
The Hungarian PM's statements came from an interview by French politician Philippe de Villiers in a new book, I Pulled the Thread of Lies, and Everything Unravelled, the prime minister’s office press release revealed.
“What outrages our opponents the most is the fact that in our Constitution we have written that Hungary has Christian roots; that here there is no place for multiculturalism; that a child has the right to a mother and a father; and that our nation has the right to defend its borders – which are also the borders of the European Union,” Orbán said.
Orbán also noted that the European Union could become split, adding that Europe is becoming divided by 'Islamification' and those who resist it.
In February, Foreign minister Péter Szijjártó defined Hungary's rejection of multiculturalism and mass migration as a determination to market and demographic challenges.
Szijjártó explained how the country is favoring a more socially cohesive society along with 'pro-family' policies which support local people to 'upskill' and raise their own families.
