According to Gábor Kuncze, the social-liberals should come up with one candidate: the former chairman of the SZDSZ said to the atv.hu that his favourite candidate is György Jaksity, a business man or György Surányi, former governor of the NBH, but he would also accept László Majtényi.
Ildikó Lendvai, former chair woman, caucus-leader of the Socialists argues for Botka-Majtényi, but she agrees with Kuncze that a single party is needed to run on the left in 2018. László Kovács, a former chairman of the Socialists is warning not to repeat the mistakes made in 2014. According to Róbert László, electoral expert there is no difference between Botka or an 'external' candidate. An anti-Orban message and local groundwork must be done. He believes that a cooperation with Jobbik would have a negative effect on the left.
