Kelemen: Jobbik’s ascent worries me


National leader of the Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania (UDMR), minor at rule, Kelemen Hunor told a press conference on Friday in Cluj-Napoca that he is worried by how the extremist Jobbik party of Hungary, which captured 21 percent of the April 6 elections in Hungary, have climbed in the preferences of the Hungarian voters.
‘Both UDMR and I are worried by how Jobbik grows. This is no welcoming outcome and we are not welcoming it. We have to be cautious, first of all the Hungarian politicians should, because any form of extremism complicates things, not only at the level of a country, but at the European Union’s level as well. We knew Jobbik would not be successful in Romania. I believe the democratic parties of Hungary, both the ruling FIDESZ and the Socialists, are widely aware that they should not allow Jobbik to thrive,’ said Kelemen, quoted by Agerpres. Kelemen attended a meeting of the representatives of the National Council of UDMR Mayors and Councilors and representatives of the Association of Hungary’s Local Public Administrations, where a cooperation agreement between the two organisations was signed.
