Jobbik's spokesman told journalists that the party's greatest success is the fact that it still survives:
György Szilágyi said:
Fidesz wanted to wipe us off the face of the Earth, but they couldn't.
The spokesman added that they are happy with any result, as, throughout the past year, they have been fighting for their party's continued existence. Szilágyi said attempts to wipe Jobbik out include the huge fines imposed on the party by the State Audit Office, and Fidesz's media campaign which resulted in more than 200 libel suits against pro-government media.
Szilágyi tried his best to explain somehow why the expected results are not that bad for Jobbik: He said even if the party performs worse than their 2018 general election result, Jobbik will still remain the strongest opposition party, as this is "a different election method."
