“We have won a victory so big that you can see it from the moon, but certainly from Brussels”

“We have won a victory so great that it can be seen from the moon, but certainly from Brussels,” Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told his supporters in Budapest, writes Hungary Today

Orbán said the election result proved that Hungarians love their country. His speech was interrupted several times with chants of “Ria, Ria, Hungária” as well as “Viktor! Viktor!”

“It was nice fighting with you,” Orbán said. “I thank you all for what you put into this victory, I thank you for the good wishes, the encouragement, the many hours of work, and for those who prayed for us,” the prime minister began his victory speech. He also thanked the Hungarians beyond the borders, especially for their help, because “that gave us the opportunity to help them.” Orbán also extended a special greeting to the Hungarians in Transcarpathia, saying “don’t be afraid, hang in there, the motherland is with you!”

He also thanked the more than 100,000 volunteers who have worked for the party in recent days: “They are not mercenaries, but volunteers who love their country and were ready to do the hard work.”

Orbán said that to date they have exhausted all possibilities of victory: in 2010 they won a two-round victory, then they were able to defeat the partial opposition coalition and now the full opposition alliance.

According to Orbán, they had big international power centres lined up against them, but he said that “every cent they gave to the Hungarian left was wasted money.” It seems that “the Hungarian left was the worst investment in ‘Uncle Gyuri’s life’.” (He was referring to US-Hungarian billionaire Georg Soros).

According to Orbán, the election succeeded in defending Hungary’s independence and freedom, as well as the country’s peace, “and although we don’t know the results yet, we know the results for our children.”
