The opposition Párbeszéd party formed its parliamentary group on Friday, electing Bence Tordai as the group’s interim leader, the party said in a statement.
When Tímea Szabó’s term as the party’s co-leader expires in September, she will head the parliamentary group, while Tordai will be her deputy from that time on, the statement said. In the meantime, she will act as his deputy.
As we have also reported, Tordai was already expected to take a leading position in the party, so the announcement does not come as a surprise, although nothing certain was said before.
Earlier, both Budapest mayor Gergely Karácsony and Tímea Szabó said that they will not be co-president of the party.
