Kubatov condemns thug incident at Election Office
Budapest (MTI) – Gábor Kubatov, deputy leader of ruling Fidesz, has condemned an incident in which a group of thugs allegedly prevented a Socialist deputy from submitting his initiative to the National Election Office (NVI).
Kubatov, interviewed by MTI on his way back from the United States, said over the phone that he had seen footage of the incident and found what had happened “improper”. He added he hoped that rules on submitting such initiatives would be changed to avoid similar developments in future.
The opposition has suggested a link between Kubatov, who is president of soccer club Fradi, and the thugs seen at the Election Office last Tuesday, who were allegedly associated with Fradi’s security services.
