Election 2010 - Fidesz, Jobbik campaign on a anti-crime ticket

<p>Budapest, September 30 (MTI) - Hungary s Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Thursday visited Miskolc in northeastern Hungary on his campaign trail before Sunday s local elections. Fighting crime was the main topic.</p>

Orban addressed crime prevention, which is a hot topic in Miskolc, a city where high unemployment and crime have been flagged as problems by the centre-right governing Fidesz party as well as the radical nationalist Jobbik.     Jobbik campaigns on an anti-crime ticket and draws a connection between crime and the city s Roma population with its favoured term "Gypsy crime".

    Orban told a gathering campaigning in support of Akos Kriza, the Fidesz-Christian Democrat mayoral candidate in Miskolc, that unemployment "cannot justify crime".

    "Everyone must obey the law, regardless of their ethnicity or social situation," Orban said.

    The government will guarantee the safety of residents while new jobs are created, said Orban, who has pledged to create one million jobs within the next few years.

    Kriza said Miskolc s economic standing had much deteriorated under the Gyurcsany government, while Orban added that the Economy Ministry is currently in talks about some 30 investment projects targeting the northeastern region.

    Campaigning on crime, Jobbik leader Gabor Vona told a press conference in Budapest on Thursday that his party urges heavy prison sentences and confiscation of property for politicians caught on corruption charges. Vona said the Fidesz government had failed to deliver on its earlier promise to uncover corruption among top politicians.
