Following the party’s annual general assembly on Thursday, the New World People’s Party, chaired by József Pálinkás, former Minister of Education of the first Orbán government, will be dissolved permanently, without a legal successor.
The decision to dissolve was announced in a Facebook post.
The post reads:
The New World People’s Party held its Annual General Assembly on May 19, 2022, at which it adopted the financial statements for the previous year. It assessed the situation following the parliamentary elections and adopted the President’s proposal to dissolve the party without legal succession.”
The New World People’s Party (ÚVNP) was founded in October 2020 by József Pálinkás (former President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, former Minister of Education under Viktor Orbán, and former member of Fidesz), Júlia Ábrahám, Gabriella Lantos, László Fekete, and Sándor Stelli-Kis. The party’s president was József Pálinkás, who ran in the 2021 primaries as a candidate for prime minister, but failed to collect the 20,000 signatures required. However, 17 of the party’s 19 candidates at the time collected the 400 signatures needed to stand as individual candidates.
