Parbeszed to nominate former minority rights ombudsman Kaltenbach for Hungary’s next president

The opposition Parbeszed-Greens party is committed to a direct election of Hungary's president and "if this materialises" the party will nominate former minority rights ombudsman and lawyer Jeno Kaltenbach for the post, Parbeszed said on Tuesday.

“We believe that Hungary’s next president ought to be a worthy, autonomous person committed to representing the interest of the whole of Hungarian society,” the party said in a statement.

The party said that “in the current deep moral and political crisis” a person “with moral integrity and commitment to the ideal of the republic” should serve as the country’s next president, “one who represents the unity of the nation”.
