Geert Wilders, the prospective Prime Minister of the Netherlands, is set to visit Hungary and participate in CPAC Hungary in Budapest this April.
Wilders announced on the social media platform X that he will be part of CPAC Hungary, expressing gratitude for the invitation from Miklós Szánthó and the Center for Fundamental Rights. The right-wing Dutch politician whose party won last year’s elections in the Netherlands, stated: ‘Proud to be there and speak!’
Miklós Szánthó, the director of the Center for Fundamental Rights, defined CPAC as the cornerstone of the intellectual hinterland where people of goodwill and their representatives can join hands. He emphasized that in June in Europe and later in November in the United States, they will collectively fight for reclaiming the Western world.
Szánthó reminded that what was once ridiculed or deemed impossible just a few years or decades ago—such as the interchange of male and female gender roles, prioritizing migrants’ sensitivity over everything else, or escalating conflict in opposition to peace efforts—is now part of the mainstream discourse.
CPAC Hungary 2024 is scheduled for 25–26 April, with Prime Minister Orbán Viktor invited as the keynote speaker.
The Conservative Political Action Conference is a recurring event that serves as a focal point for conservative voices and ideas. Originating in the United States, CPAC has expanded its reach globally, including the establishment of CPAC Hungary.
CPAC provides a platform for conservative leaders, intellectuals, and activists to share their perspectives, discuss key issues, and strategize for the future. The event typically covers a wide range of topics, including but not limited to, constitutional principles, individual liberties, free-market economics, and the proper role of government.
