Ferenc Gyurcsány, former Socialist prime minister said in his speech on an MSZP event held in Győr last Sunday afternoon that after one year of Fidesz government the following must be made clear: Orbán has to go. Gyurcsány told that the only way for the Orbán government to act was to destroy things. He underlined that impassioned and vehement demonstrations against Orbán’s government should only be organized against the policy of the government, however, they must not turn against the order of the republic.
He added that the demonstrations should express the capability to understand that only a responsible opposition is able to develop into a responsible governing party. Gyurcsány said that although the president of Fidesz has promised a better country before the elections in 2010, his government is causing never-before-seen conflicts on either social or economic levels. Meanwhile the government’s policy is widening the gap between the poor and the rich without being able to reach either economic growth or balance. But all this time the prime minister says that the world, the crisis and the past eight years are to blame, but he is not. Ferenc Gyurcsány commented on the pension cuts that Viktor Orbán had always been sweet and gentle towards pensioners until winning in the elections, but after that he keeps thinking about how he could collect more money from them. Hungary will be calm if the population can realize that we depend on each other: the employer from the employee and vice versa, and if they realize, through fair agreements, that both sides have their justifiable interests that will be respected, Gyurcsány said. He also added that every moderate democratic actor should join to found a western democracy, because the set-backs by Fidesz will not make Hungary successful. He also mentioned that the youth in their twenties should be made clear that we are unable to rewrite the 20th century. We have nothing to do with the past, all we have to deal with is the present and the future. We do not need to divide the country into good people and bad people. The only thing we have to do is to work together hard.
