The ruling Christian Democrat (KDNP) party on Tuesday called on the leftist parties to address allegations against László Bíró, a joint opposition candidate in a by-election in the town of Szerencs.
Lőrinc Nacsa, the deputy leader of KDNP’s parliamentary group, insisted that Bíró, of the conservative Jobbik party, had exhibited “racist and anti-Semitic behaviour, had murky business affairs” and mistreated and threatened his employees.
The leftist parties continue to “keep mum” about those very serious issues, he said.
On the remarks of Ferenc Gyurcsány, the leader of the leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) regarding Attila Vidnyánszky, the recently appointed head of the supervisory board of the University of Film and Theatre Arts, Nacsa said Gyurcsány “wants to build a country where right-wing artists are not safe”. He called Gyurcsány’s remarks “shocking”, saying they were reminiscent of the communist era.
