The vice-head of the Democratic Coalition (DK) said to the right-wing political daily newspaper Magyar Nemzet that his party was ready to run in the general elections 2018 independently.
Mr. László Varju made his statement after the candidate of the Hungarian Socialists (MSZP) for Prime Minister Mr. László Botka asked the head of DK to step aside. Mr. Varju added that they didn't make a final decision about running independently but that they kept paying attention to every tiny change in the political atmosphere. He repeatedly said that basically DK stood up for running jointly with other democratic opposition parties to get rid of Orbán's regime. The party vice-head also added that a real cooperation would better not start with a good-tempered party assembly of MSZP. DK was surprised by the statements of Mr. Botka, he said. DK was looking forward to start negotiations with Mr. Botka but the socialist candidate for PM didn't contact DK to start any talks. Spokesperson of DK Mr. Zsolt Gréczy said in an interview on ATV on Monday that they were looking forward to sit with Mr. Botka for a cup of tea, coffee or whatever he'd take. The spokesperson added that in his view the person of Mr. Botka himself is divisive because not a single future ally was found yet.
