Jakab received unanimous support from the party organization including the party's Miskolc wing. The Jobbik politician has Jewish ancestry, but he neither profited nor suffered disadvantage of this fact as the Jobbik party weighs candidates solely on merits.
At a press-conference the Jobbik politician called his nomination a great honor. He emphasized that in Borsod county Jobbik has become the biggest opposition force, the only true challenger of the Fidesz party. This success can be attributed to the coordinated team work of Jobbik Miskolc wing; the next step would be winning the municipal election in the fall. Jobbik is ready to lead the city and implement measures to improve the lives of the residents of the city, also to implement the party's program and hold politicians accountable for their actions.
The Jobbik politician emphasized that if the Jobbik party wins the mayoral election law and order will be restored in the city. Jobbik distinguishes two kinds of individuals: builders and destroyers - the formers will be supported the latter persecuted; meanwhile, Jobbik will put an end to the practice of handing out millions to people with various ethnic backgrounds. In a Jobbik run city "origin will be neither advantage nor disadvantage," said Jakab, adding that he himself is the guarantee for that, who happens to have Jewish ancestry.
He stressed that Jobbik will implement a successful urban management program that will generate thousands of value added jobs. Jakab stressed that Jobbik will sign a strategic partnership agreement with small and medium-sized enterprises, and if necessary, the party will even legislate a legal framework to give a chance to small businesses.
According to Péter Jakab, transparency in city politics is paramount: the Mayor's Office and Miskolc Holding should eliminate rather than hide corruption. The Jobbik politician indicated that he will initiate investigations in every case when there is a suspicion of improper use of public funds, when major investments are awarded, or when rewards are paid out to trouble-makers.
