Budapest, February 19 (MTI) – The Movement for a Modern Hungary (Moma), headed by one-time Socialist finance minister Lajos Bokros, will support the parties of the Unity alliance under an agreement discussed today.
Bokros, who is now a conservative MEP, said his party would support Unity from the outside but would not run on the alliance’s party list or field individual candidates in the April 6 election. He added that the agreement did not involve the European parliamentary elections.
Attila Mesterhazy, the Socialist party leader and prime minister candidate for Unity, said that the alliance’s goals include restoring constitutional rule, a proportionate, two-round election system, propping up economic growth and eliminating corruption.
Bokros said as a centre-right, conservative party, the Moma has disagreements with the left, but it is Unity that is most likely to restore constitutional order in the country, as the left had not once attempted to dismantle it since the transition to democracy, Bokros said.
