According to the deputy head of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s party, Hungary plans to crack down on politically correct non-governmental organizations funded by billionaire George Soros.
With Donald Trump in the White House, Hungary has “all the tools at its disposal” to “sweep out” NGOs funded by the Hungarian-born financier.
Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the ruling Fidesz party, told Bloomberg on Tuesday that those who “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” will be shut down.
“I feel that there is an opportunity for this, internationally,” because of Trump’s election, state news service MTI reported Nemeth as saying. Lawmakers will start debating a bill to let authorities audit NGO executives, according to parliament’s legislative agenda.
In 2014, Orban personally ordered the state audit agency to probe foundations financed by Norway and said that civil society groups financed from abroad were covers for “paid political activists.”
Orban and his administration have frequently singled out NGOs supported by Soros, for promoting open borders and the migrant deluge.
Trump too, has accused the 86-year-old billionaire of being part of “a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.”
