Local Elections – Tobias: No More Compromises
Budapest, October 12 (MTI) – Socialist Party leader Jozsef Tobias, assessing the outcome of the local elections, declared that his party would no longer be willing to strike compromises.
“The Socialist leadership has decided to no longer take part in a game of elites, will not strike bad compromises and will open to the public, to the people,” he said.
The Socialists reject the system of national cooperation based on [Prime Minister Viktor] Orban’s power, he said. Nor do they accept the “authoritarian policy” represented by [DK leader] Ferenc Gyurcsany, which has put the left wing into quarantine and prevented it from pursuing a value-based, modern, leftist policy coupled with commitment to the nation.
“There is a left wing, and it is called the Socialist Party,” Tobias said.
