Jobbik Accepts Outcome of Budapest Local Election Opposition Preselection
MTI-Hungary Today 2019.07.01.
The opposition Jobbik party has said it accepts the outcome of the Budapest local election preselection and will support the winner, Gergely Karácsony, and no other candidate.
The nationalist party said in a statement late on Saturday that it had taken part in organising the opposition preselection in the capital since it firmly believed a single opposition candidate should stand against the ruling Fidesz party in the whole country, including in Budapest.
The statement added that Karácsony was the left-wing mayoral candidate and therefore Jobbik is not taking part in the campaign to promote him. But the party will not back any other candidate, it added.
