If I had to pick a well-governed country, I would chose Hungary led by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said Matteo Salvini, secretary general of the Italian Northern League, in a television interview on Sunday.

The Italian politician made the remark on La7 television adding if he had to choose a model country whose leader is a member of the European People's Party, he would choose either Austria or Hungary.

The head of the Northern League justified his choice by saying that Austria and Hungary are protecting among others, local jobs.

In addition, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán protects his country's borders, the national banks, the national currency and he shut down mass migration. If I had to choose a well-governed country, I would choose a model like this, said the Italian politician.

Matteo Salvini, who has been nominated as Prime Minister of his party, emphasized that if the Italian people elected him as prime minister in March, he would also follow the policy of US President Donald Trump - he will impose border duties in order to protect Italian workers and entrepreneurs from foreign competition.

The Northern League is a member of the center-right coalition led by Silvio Berlusconi.

In the last parliamentary elections in 2013, the Northern League received little more than 4 percent of the vote. According to current surveys, Mattio Salvini's party has around 14 percent support, but in the northern regions of Italy his party's support surged well beyond 20 percent.
