Budapest, June 22 (MTI) – Egyutt (Together) plans to function as a party that is able to govern, supports the development of the middle classes and expresses strong sympathy with the needy, newly elected executive co-chair Viktor Szigetvari said on Sunday.
Szigetvari said the party held a meeting on Saturday where participants decided to make every effort to oust Prime Minister Viktor Orban in 2018 and create a better country.
In his programme as executive co-chair of the party, Szigetvari said he set out to develop a party that is successful, able to govern and places emphasis on liberalism and a centre-left identity that is free of opposition LMP’s “anti-elite populism” and also of left-wing parties’ recent return to populist tendencies.
He said Egyutt would continue to incorporate the Solidarity movement and it would strengthen the alliance with the Dialogue for Hungary (PM) party.
Szigetvari said there is a group of prosecutors in Hungary who keep the justice administration system “in detention” and chief prosecutor Peter Polt is an obstacle to revealing the truth, because he works towards “serving Viktor Orban” instead of working for the truth. In response to a question whether Polt should be sent to jail, Szigetvari said “he should if he commits a crime”.
