Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban set out to build his own political force across the European Union after a decade-long row over democratic values led to the his party’s exit from the center-right group in in the bloc’s parliament.

“Our task is clear,” Orban said in a statement. “Now – without the EPP – we must build a European democratic right that offers a home to European citizens who do not want migrants, who do not want multiculturalism, who have not descended into LGBTQ lunacy, who defend Europe’s Christian traditions, who respect the sovereignty of nations, and who see their nations not as part of their past, but as part of their future.”
