Budapest, February 14 (MTI) – Delegates on Saturday elected Viktor Szigetvari as the new leader of the opposition Egyutt (Together) party. So far the party was led by two co-leaders.
Szigetvari received more than 68 percent of the votes. His mandate is for two years.
The party’s new deputy leaders are Levente Papa and Peter Juhasz.
Szigetvari said after his election that he is a team player and Egyutt will continue to operate as a community, as “a single man cannot remedy the problems of the Hungarian opposition.”
He said Egyutt wants to become the defining force of an opposition renewal in Hungary and in one year the party would like to be known as the grouping that “fought hardest against corruption and organised theft.”
Juhasz said he was working on a nation-wide anti-corruption movement which would leave no doubt in 2018 on how to replace the Orban government.
