The ruling Fidesz party’s communications director said in a video message on Wednesday that former Socialist prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsány, “who confessed to lying to the Hungarian people” 15 years ago “still leads Hungary’s left wing”.
Marking the 15th anniversary of a leaked speech Gyurcsány made at a closed-door Socialist party meeting in Őszöd, in which he said his government had been
“lying day and night”,
István Hollik said: “There isn’t any other Gyurcsány”, adding that the current leader of the opposition Democratic Coalition had “confessed to deceiving the Hungarian people”.
“Today’s left is the same as the old. Nothing has changed,” the Fidesz politician said.
