(MTI) – The left-of-centre opposition forces have decided to campaign under a single name and have plumped for “Osszefogas” — “Unity”.
In a joint statement, the Socialist Party, Together – the party for change (E), the Democratic Coalition (DK), Dialogue for Hungary (PM), and the Hungarian Liberal Party (MLP) said that the five parties would nominate candidates for each of the 106 individual constituencies under the Unity banner.
On the ballot paper, all their party names and logos will appear, but they will cooperate in campaigning with a single image.
“Naturally, no new political party has been created as a result,” the statement added.
The ruling Fidesz party said in a statement referring to one-time Socialist prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsany that “it hardly matters under what name they try to cover up the truth; it is the same Gyurcsany coalition which already ruined the country.”
