Chief ruling party Fidesz spokesperson agreed with the speaker of the Hungarian parliament’s speech, in which the latter called Hungary’s opposition the ‘most dangerous national security threat’, during Monday’s legislative sitting, Telex reported.

Parliament Speaker László Kövér said in a speech to the country’s intelligence community in February 2020 that the opposition was the biggest threat to the country’s national security, revealed by leaked audiotapes published over the weekend.

Head of PM’s office minister Gergely Gulyás, answering questions for the prime minister from the opposition during the parliament’s plenary sitting, said he agreed with every word of László Kövér’s speech. “It is worth reading the whole speech. I recommend you to do the same,” he added.

“This speech speaks for itself,” Gulyás said. There was nothing secret about it, he said, but the workings of these bodies do not belong in the public domain. “The opposition can also identify with László Kövér’s speech,” he added.
