"The French Gyurcsany" - Hungary's pro-Gov't papers liken French president-elect Macron to Gyurcsany

Pro-Government papers and newsportals published articles aiming to show the similarities of Emmanuel Macron's professional and political carrier to former Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány's.

The main goal of these articles is that Macron has thus far showed no signs of admiration for Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. As FreeHungary reported earlier, Macron slammed his contender, Marine Le Pen, during the presidential election campaing by accusing the candidate from the far-right party Front National of being in cahoots with the likes of Orbán and Russian President Vladimir Putin. "We all know who Le Pen's allies are: Orbán, Putin. These aren't regimes with an open and free democracy," Macron reportedly said at a May 1 campaign stop in Paris.
The anti-Macron and anti-Gyurcsany feelings in these articles on,, etc, is very tangible. gave the title of "Let us present the French Gyurcsány!" to their article.
The first similarity according to them is that both Macron and Gyurcsány served as a minister and advisor under a Socialist president or Prime Minister, but then both of them left and later - as the pro-Fidesz writers interpret - "backstabbed" their former bosses.
The other similarity is that both politicians come from the business world and not politics. These articles mention also that these two political leaders got their fortune from their business, before entering the political scene. (Unlike Viktor Orbán, who has never worked in the private sector, only in politics, and got his huge fortune through politics - the editor).
As presented as a big sin for these pro-Fidesz papers, both politicians are pro-EU and promote the idea of more Europe.
And the final and biggest proof to these papers that the two politicians are very much alike is the fact that both of them frequently appear in tabloids as well.
