Hungary’s Orban vows tougher laws on migration, names new deputy PMs

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday that his new government would soon bring forward tighter immigration rules. “We are building a Christian democracy,” Orban told public radio. “We will defend Christian culture and will not surrender the country to aliens,” Orban said. He named Interior Minister Sandor Pinter and Economy Minister Mihaly Varga as deputy prime ministers, and gave notice he would take a tough stance against the EU over the bloc’s next budget, Reuters reports. Orban was re-elected in an April landslide that gave his ruling Fidesz party a two-thirds parliamentary majority, enabling it to rewrite major laws.
