Gergely Karácsony, the mayor of Budapest, has got his analysis of the opposition’s election woes wrong, according to Péter Ungár, parliamentary leader of the opposition LMP party.
As we wrote earlier today, four Budapest constituencies held by-elections on Sunday, with three going to candidates of the ruling party and one to the opposition, the National Election Office (NVI) said late on Sunday, details HERE.
Commenting on a “disappointing” outcome in Sunday’s by-election, Ungar said on Facebook that whereas Karacsony got it right that voters had punished the opposition for its performance since the April 3 general election, he said the pre-election record of the opposition was hardly brilliant either.
“Given Karácsony’s irredeemable merits in devising the pre-April strategy, he should have allowed his ‘analyst self’ more time to surface before issuing new directives,” Ungár said.
Ungár also disputed Karácsony’s view that voters wanted “much more opposition party unity”, insisting that the opposition had enjoyed one million more votes when there was rivalry between them.
