The leaders of the Momentum movement, who are about to become a party within short time, think to know where the parties before them had failed: they couldn't get out of Budapest.
They say, they don't need a limelight to all of their steps; in the next months they would like to help solving local problems and to prove thereby that politics can still be attractive. After more than 266 thousand signatures of Budapest citizens they expect that they would be able to collect more votes than the above number at the elections in 2018.
In response to the question of an online portal hvg.hu whether they are prepared to compete with MSZP (Socialist Party) and DK (Democratic Coalition) they said that, "even though many people think that, with the emergence of Momentum, we will cut the same cake of the left-wing to smaller pieces, but this is not true. During the campaign we were able to address a lot of undecided, politically inactive people, that is, we can bake a new cake!"
Looking at the realities, the party's goal is to take steps towards a replacement of the government later. The most important thing for Momentum is to be ready to make use of the opportunities offered by Hungarian politics. Such an opportunity was the referendum on the Olympic Games. Until now, Fidesz had a very comfortable position and, for the time being, Momentum's responsibility is to work as a counterbalance.
