All freedom-loving democrats will be able to celebrate August 20 next year if the Socialist Party forms a government, the opposition party’s co-leader Bertalan Tóth said on Friday.

Speaking in a video message posted on Facebook, Tóth said “the state that we are supposed to be celebrating today is being stolen by Fidesz leaders and put into foundations and private accounts”.

The thieves are “taking not just our money but our rights and our future as well”, Tóth said.
