Former Jobbik Leader Vona to Launch New Party in Hungary
Gábor Vona, the former leader of opposition Jobbik, has said that a foundation he registered following the 2018 parliamentary election will be transformed into a political party dubbed 2RK (Second Reform Age).

Vona said in a video on Facebook that “there could be a second reform age in Hungary in the 21st century, meaning a country that organises itself and a society that has self-respect”.

Instead of following ideologies, the party will pursue politics along the political vision of the reform age, he said, adding that it would not deal with the “tribal conflicts” that characterised Hungarian politics today but “focus on their own issues while building bridges and seeking creative energies”.

He added that 2RK would not enter into an alliance either with the ruling parties or any opposition party.
