Pál Veres, the newly elected opposition mayor of north-eastern Hungary’s Miskolc, on Sunday vowed to work together with “everyone who represents the interests of the city”.

“Miskolc has won,” Veres, who won 55 percent of the vote in Hungary’s fourth-largest city, declared in his victory speech.

He said his campaign had been honest and committed to “working with all of Miskolc’s residents”.

“We want to build a new, beautiful city, to create a great Miskolc,” Veres said, adding that this would require the cooperation of all of the city’s residents.
