After landslide re-election win, Hungary’s Orban takes aim at Soros

Thursday, April 12, 2018 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , , ,

(Worthy News) - Having easily won re-election to a third term and clinching a two-thirds parliamentary majority for his ruling Fidesz party, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban vowed to crack down on liberal nongovernmental organizations.

One of the first laws to be passed by the new parliament will likely be what is being called the “Stop Soros” legislation in which NGOs which support migration and pose a “national security risk” could be banned, a spokesman for Fidesz said on April 9.

The bill is named after Hungarian-born leftist billionaire George Soros, who Orban has accused of trying to flood Europe with refugees. [ Source: World Tribune (Read More...) ]
