Controversies[edit]

  • Kubatov is one of the most passive MPs in the National Assembly since 2006. During his parliamentary career, he gave a speech only once, on April 3, 2007.[1][3]
  • In two audio recordings (disclosed in 2010) and in a video (disclosed in 2012) Kubatov speaks about creating and managing a list containing data on the party preference of voters. Fidesz allegedly uses this list to activate its voters. Additionally, in the video Kubatov instructs Fidesz-activists to break the campaign silence period to send lazy sympathizers to vote.[4]
