Hungary’s Pit Bull Prime Minister

[…] “He understood the lessons of his first government not quite rightly,” says Kornelia Magyar, of Hungary’s Progressive Institute. “I think the fact that he lost, he thinks that this was because of the media, because he was not aggressive enough with the opposition, because he was too generous letting all his enemies flourish. And, therefore, now he began with strengthening and expanding his power immediately.”

“The most important thing to know about Orbán is that he is the best and the most effective in a conflict. He doesn’t like peace, he doesn’t like normality,” says Eörsi. “He cannot stop fighting. Like a shark, he cannot stop eating.”
