Bernadett Szél is resigning her positions as group and co-leader of green opposition LMP, according to unconfirmed press reports.
A report of Szél’s resignations first surfaced on online news portal Borsod24 on Tuesday. News portal Index later said the news had been confirmed to them by someone from LMP.
In an interview given to weekly Magyar Hang to be published on Wednesday,
Szél talked about how she had come to a decision on her future after LMP’s ethics committee barred her from holding any functionary positions within the party, without ordering her to resign as co-leader.
LMP’s ethics committee handed down its decision after the party’s leadership held talks with other opposition parties on cooperating in the April general election and withdrew multiple of LMP’s individual candidates in their favour despite the party’s congresses having passed several resolutions prohibiting this.
