Fidesz MP publishes essay critical of gov’t


The ruling Fidesz party has not been paying attention or listening to each other, and this neglect of proper dialogue with the Hungarian population could lead to a “hot summer and fall”, Fidesz MP János Bencsik writes in an essay published on his personal website.

The essay by Bencsik, former Secretary of State for Energy and mayor of Tatabánya, contains numerous critical remarks aimed at the current government. The MP said he believes that the most crucial issue of national strategy is young Hungarians emigrating abroad. Commenting on the recent centralization of power in Hungary, Bencsik said that the process “crushes the Hungarian nation’s healthy life instinct into dust”.

Bencsik has been openly critical of his party recently. He was fined HUF 300,000 for voting against the party’s will. Following this, he said that “the government has no doubt taken measures to regulate capital dominated monopolies in the past five years, but some of the measures regarding burden sharing failed to comply with the principles of fairness, due to a lack of professional planning”.
