Socialist co-leader calls for opposition cooperation in local, EP elections

Agnes Kunhalmi, co-leader of the opposition Socialists, has called for opposition parties to cooperate in Hungary's upcoming municipal elections, and proposed setting up a joint list for EP elections.

At a press conference in central Budapest, Kunhalmi said the opposition “must not allow” the ruling party to divide them lest the ruling Fidesz party “takes back Budapest and also wins the municipal elections”.

“Democratic parties joined together and won in 14 districts at the past election in 2019,” she said, calling for support for incumbent opposition mayors.

Kunhalmi said her party backed the nomination of incumbent 8th district mayor Andras Piko, who represents the Momentum, DK, Socialist, Parbeszed and LMP parties.

She said the Socialists will continue their signature drive seeking public support for opposition cooperation in the municipal and EP elections in Budapest and across the country.
