Budapest, May 12 (MTI) – Left-leaning policies in Hungary need renewal, Together-PM co-chair Peter Juhasz said on Monday, and insisted that the aim of “ousting the Orban-regime” was not a sufficient goal.
Juhasz noted that the upcoming European parliamentary elections would offer an opportunity for parties to test their support individually as opposed to the Hungarian general election in April when leftist parties formed an alliance, and called on voters to participate and cast their ballot for Together-PM.
Marton Benedek, a founder of Together, said that his party wished to represent Hungarian interests in a transparent way, and suggested it was contrary to the government’s practice, which he said had led to the EU’s suspending funds for Hungary.
Egyutt 2014 (Together 2014) was founded by former PM Gordon Bajnai in 2013, signaling his return to political life. It has cooperated with a splinter group of green LMP called Dialogue for Hungary (PM). Bajnai is placed first on the party’s EP list.
