Opposition to Run Joint Candidates in Pécs

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.04.03.

The opposition parties will run joint candidates in all 18 electoral districts of Pécs, in southern Hungary, in the municipal elections scheduled for in October, representatives of the participating DK, Socialists, LMP, Jobbik and Momentum parties told a news conference on Wednesday.

Ruling Fidesz said in response that the opposition parties were only interested in seizing power and “gave a fake impression of unity” only to “mislead the residents of Pécs”.

“What unites them is that they play from a score written by [US billionaire George] Soros, support migration and sacrifice anything for power,” Fidesz said.
