We have just recently reported that Gergely Karácsony, Lord Mayor of Budapest announced his bid to become the prime minister candidate for Hungary’s six opposition parties which are trying to forge an alliance to take on Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in national elections next year.

Earlier this week, the Hungarian opposition said it would hold the

country’s first ever primary elections this year to pick joint candidates to contest the 2022 ballot, a move that could threaten Orbán’s more than decade-long grip on power.

The Socialist Party will support Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony for the opposition’s prime ministerial candidate in the opposition primary ahead of next year’s general elections.

According to a statement sent to MTI on Saturday, the

Socialists and Karácsony’s allied Párbeszéd party see the mayor as a “young and modern” politician, who, as prime minister, would be a “committed supporter” of the Socialists’ programme.

The Socialists said that as prime minister, Karácsony could “rebuild the rule of law in Hungary” where “the press will again be free and the law will apply to all”. They also voiced hope that under a new government “everybody could prosper according to their talent and skills, the needy would get help as a matter of fact and social security would be a priority”.

Karácsony, they added, would devote close attention to the protection of natural assets and work to raise climate awareness and promote green energies.

  1. Well of course they would support their own candidate. Luckily a majority of Hungarians don’t support the former Communist now Socialist party and its slate of Marxist candidates. What they stand for is against the wishes of a majority of the Hungarian people.

  2. It’s a shame, Fidesz was a good party but the supreme master has ruined it with his lies and corruption.

  3. I have to admit that I do not know much about the activity of Mr. Orban. I do, however, know that the only thing the left has to offer is destruction. Years ago there was a meme (I think that is the correct term) that said: Better dead than red. It is no less true today.

  4. Mr. Gregory Christmas can – at best – speak ‘pigeon English’ (but not converse with the South Korean Ambassador, yet alone Hungarian English-speaking reporters who want to ask him a few questions).

    Furthermore, after EIGHT YEARS of trying – and trying – and trying – he was UNABLE to successfully obtain a PhD from one of Budapest’s renowned universities.

    So here we have a CRAZY situation where the ‘loony left’ are collectively having ‘wet dreams’ (and possibly even ‘hard ons’) about this ‘goof’ becoming the next Prime Minister of Hungary. What gives ?
