Hungary to Target Timmermans, Soros in Anti-Immigrant Posters Ahead of EU Vote

The original placards featuring Jean-Claude Juncker alongside George Soros, meant to show their closeness, has sparked fury in the EU, with the EU Commission president condemning the promo-campaign as “lies”, and demanding that the Hungarian governing party Fidesz be stripped of its membership within the EU Parliament’s centre-right bloc.

Hungary’s right-wing government announced Saturday that it would stop a poster campaign against the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker and go ahead with a new one against his deputy, First Vice-President Frans Timmermans.

“Hungarians have a right to know what kind of pro-migration plans are under preparation by the Brussels bureaucracy”, government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said. “That’s why we undertook an information campaign, which will come to an end, according to original plans, on March 15th”.

Shortly thereafter, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban detailed the move, saying that posters with Timmermans would replace those featuring Juncker, since “Mr Juncker is retiring and Mr Timmermans is taking his place”, Orban told the newspaper Die Welt am Sonntag in an interview.

Orban pointed out that Timmermans, the Party of European Socialists’ candidate likely to replace Juncker as Commission president in the upcoming May elections, was, in agreement with his colleague, an “ally” of leftist billionaire George Soros. “Everyone has the right to know this”, the prime minister stressed to Die Welt, in reference to the similar caption on the posters.

The said placards essentially sport Juncker alongside the Hungarian-American Soros with captions that blast the pair for trying to join efforts to promote illegal migration in Hungary by imposing compulsory refugee resettlement quotas and disregarding EU member states’ right to border security.
