Party President Gábor Vona and vice-Chairman Csaba Gyüre held a press conference in Nyíregyháza on Friday and talked about some of the issues that got special attention at the caucus meeting. These included among others the Fidesz government's unfulfilled election promises, the foreign currency debt bailout issue and the land law that the government passed in the last session of parliament but Jobbik considers it inadequate because it can't protect the Hungarian farm land from foreign buyers.
In the next session of parliament Jobbik will introduce a new land law and call on the government to start negotiations with the European Union of the extension of the land purchase moratorium, because the conditions that called for it are still stand as Hungary's wages and living standards are not in parity with that of the Western European countries.
Vona revealed that the caucus discussed several taboo issues as well including the risks of quitting the European Union and the possible fallout of such a move. The Jobbik caucus unanimously supported the idea to set up a work group made up by independent economists with the objective to assess the costs of leaving the European Union and draw up plans about the country's economic and political possibilities outside the European Union.
The population should be adequately prepared for such a move because "we are over an unprepared EU accession, it would be unfortunate if we would leave the European Union in a disorderly manner," said party President Gábor Vona.
