The radical nationalist Jobbik party led by Gábor Vona has not become a force capable of ousting the government, the Nézőpont Institute says in an analysis. The party has been unable to keep any social issue on the agenda for any significant time and its support hovers around 2014 levels, Nézőpont said. As a result party divisions are deepening and more and more Jobbik supporters are openly questioning Vona’s strategy of transforming Jobbik into a more moderate people’s party. As a diversionary tactic to keep the spotlight away from his political failures, Vona has chosen the strategy of outrunning the enemy and has found scapegoats in his deputy leaders whom he now wants to replace, Nézőpont insisted. An even more important question is whether Jobbik membership still trusts Vona, who promised them Jobbik would be in government in 2014 (there are now fewer Jobbik MPs than there were in 2010). “In case of a similar failure in 2018, Vona alone will be held responsible within Jobbik”, as he has manoeuvred to squeeze out all dissenting voices in the party, Nézőpont said.
