Benedek Jávor and Tímea Szabó are leading the Dialogue for Hungary bloc

The statutes of the organization have been adopted and it will soon become a party. They will start negotiations with Gordon Bajnai and his supporters. Benedek Jávor and Tímea Szabó were elected co-chairmen of the Dialogue for Hungary (PM) movement last Sunday in Budapest. The first congress of the PM has given them authorization to begin negotiations with the Together 2014 movement. The two co-chairs said during the press conference in the break of the congress that they were assisted in their work by a four member presidency. The presidency members are: Gábor Scheiring, Krisztina Bakó, Gergely Karácsony and Bence Tordai. Tímea Szabó announced that the constituent assembly has adopted the statutes of the organization, as well as a public policy package of 13 +1 points, and the founding statement. Benedek Jávor said that Hungary needed a new political force. He stressed that a little more than a year later, there would be elections in Hungary and the PM believed it was essential that government change followed.

Benedek Jávor said that the PM's founders believed they could outline a vision that ensured decent living conditions after 2014 for everyone, today and for future generations. He added that, according to their view, they were able to implement a strategy that would lead the country to government change, but this was only possible by cooperation. He said that the Dialogue for Hungary movement was ready to cooperate with those democratic political forces that agree with its fundamental objectives and are committed to the government change. The statutes that were adopted Sunday at the Congress will be submitted to the court, and the new party will hopefully be registered as soon as possible. He also said that they would start their campaign Monday, by developing the details of their electoral program on one hand, and by building a nation-wide network on the other hand. The newly elected Co-Chairman stated that they believed their party would have a separate fraction in parliament after 2014. During the press conference, the two co-chairs and the founding members of the PM present signed the so-called wall of the founders.

After that Tímea Szabó, answering a question, informed the press that the Sunday assembly unanimously authorized the presidency, with one abstention, to open negotiations in the near future with the Together 2014 movement. Benedek Jávor added, the discussions on the form and circumstances of this cooperation for the government change would also begin. Tímea Szabó emphasized, however, that the PM had no plans to join the Together 2014 movement, because they wanted to reach their objectives by separate politics. However, it is considered essential for them to reach a sort of agreement with other acceptable democratic forces in order to replace the current government, she said. Reacting to another question, Benedek Jávor replied that the local government led by the mayor of Budapest István Tarlós was wrongly interpreting the legislation when not letting the Dialogue for Hungary movement form a fraction at Town Hall. In his opinion, the PM was entitled to a three-member fraction there.
