Hungary’s Orban calls for surge of ‘illiberal Christian democracies’ in fresh THREAT to EU

EUROSCEPTIC Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban took a swipe at Western political establishment and said next year’s European parliament election could bring to power “illiberal Christian democracy”, ending decades of multiculturalism.

Referring to liberal and left-wing politicians that upended the ruling conservative order in many countries in the 1960s, he continued: "We are facing a big moment: we are saying goodbye not simply to liberal democracy... but to the 1968 elite.”

Mr Orban, who was re-elected for the third consecutive time Prime Minister on April 8, has spearheaded a crusade against the European immigration rules that wants each EU member to accept a quota of asylum seekers and migrants, arguing the European Commission is eroding the democratic institutions of national states.

On Friday, the right-wing nationalist leader of Fidesz, stepped up his game against the EU, welcoming the founding of the anti-EU movement group wanted by Steven Bannon, the former aide to US President Donald Trump.

Mr Bannon has announced on Thursday his intention of creating a project able to coordinate and boost anti-EU and nationalists groups across the European Union in the run-up to the European elections.
