Momentum, a new opposition party, will convene to elect new top officials in June, the leader of the party said on Thursday.
Momentum wants to remain active in politics to facilitate change which has not taken place since 2014, András Fekete-Győr told a press conference.
The current regime can only be defeated in the streets, outside parliament, as had been proved in the past by the success of public movements that had thwarted the government’s plan on introducing an internet tax in 2014 and Hungary’s bid to host the 2024 Olympic Games last year, he said.
Momentum has become all the more motivated by the fact that some 4,000 people have joined its ranks just in the past four days after the April 8 general election, he added.
“Future will sooner or later defeat the past. [Prime Minister] Viktor Orbán cannot escape his fate, we will not stop haunting him for any minute,” Fekete-Győr said.
Representing a new political generation, Momentum will work to “move Hungary closer to Europe” and eliminate poverty, Fekete-Győr added.
