BUDAPEST (Reuters) – The European parliamentary election will hopefully strengthen anti-immigration political forces across Europe, Hungarian right-wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban told reporters after he cast his vote on Sunday.
“I hope that there will be a shift in the European public arena in favor of those political parties who would like to stop migration,” said Orban, dressed in a dark suit and an orange tie, the color of his Fidesz party.
Responding to a question, Orban declined to say whether he would join Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini’s new party alliance after the election.
