Budapest, February 11 (MTI) – Socialist leader Attila Mesterhazy met representatives of 32 EU and OECD member states at a working breakfast in Budapest on Tuesday, the opposition party told MTI in a statement.
At the event attended among the guests by 25 ambassadors, Hungarian-related domestic and foreign policy issues and developments during the recent period leading up to this year’s election were discussed, said the statement.
Mesterhazy insisted that the political contest is still open “despite all efforts against by the governing forces.”
The party leader stated his firm belief in the election victory of the current “democratic opposition”.
Mesterhazy, the prime minister candidate of the Unity left alliance, unveiled the major pillars of the programme of his government, if elected, and the first major measures it would implement, the party said.
At the event Tibor Szanyi, who tops the Socialists’ list of MEP candidates, gave an outline of the party’s programme and the candidates for the May European parliamentary elections, calling Hungary’s European “reintegration” a number-one priority.
Ambassadors requesting so also held one-on-one discussion with Mesterhazy on the event’s sidelines, said the party statement.
