The opposition Socialist and Párbeszéd parties will set up a joint list for next May’s European parliamentary elections, the leader of the Socialist Party said on Saturday.
“The majority of Hungarians want Hungary to remain a member of the European Union,”
Bertalan Tóth told a press conference on the sidelines of the party’s assembly meeting.
Tóth said the two parties would fight to limit the influence of political forces working to disintegrate the EU on the bloc’s decisions.
Gergely Karácsony, Párbeszéd’s co-leader, welcomed the Socialist assembly’s “overwhelming support” for a joint election list.
Párbeszéd will discuss a proposal on a joint list at a party meeting on Sunday, Karácsony said, adding that he would advocate for the party to continue its partnership with the Socialists.
