Budapest (MTI) – The leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) proposes that the left-wing parties should run a single joint candidate in every constituency in next year’s parliamentary election.
Party leader Ferenc Gyurcsány said at DK’s party congress on Saturday that they acknowledge that the Socialist Party will run its own party list led by László Botka. Nevertheless, “there may be many flags but there is a single camp,” so a single individual candidate must run in every constituency, Gyurcsány said.
He said the left-wing parties must work together to create a well-organised strong democratic force opposing the government, “one that shows the power of unity as well as its own colorful internal world”. He said next year’s election would be “life-changing” and would decide whether the country would continue on the “path of deterioration” or start flourishing instead.
Gyurcsány has re-elected as DK’s leader two weeks ago.
