Gábor Vona, the leader of the radical nationalist Jobbik party, has said he would resign if the party loses the general election in 2018, in an interview in daily Magyar Nemzet. “I feel the pressure that many see Jobbik as the last chance,” Vona said. “If the party fails to win … I will indeed regard that as a personal failure.” He would accept the consequences and resign. Under party rules Jobbik would need to convene an extraordinary congress to elect a new leadership. Vona said the rules allow him the option to run for the post again but his decision whether to do so would depend on the margin of defeat. “If Jobbik losses by one percent, that does not necessarily mean an end to my political career.” Vona called Prime Minister Viktor Orbán “a burnt-out man interested in nothing else but stealing and soccer”, and whose popularity is hanging by a single thread: the migrant crisis.
