The Orban's Gov't is facing the biggest challenge of the past years, Gyurcsany says

Viktor Orban's government is facing the biggest challenge of its past seven years in power, which is an opportunity for the country to get rid of it - the chairman of the Democratic Coalition stated in Szeged on Tuesday.

At a press conference prior to a meeting with supporters Ferenc Gyurcsany said that Viktor Orbán had been defeated politically several times, since 2014 he lost all the by-elections and he had to pull back in important cases, such as the internet taxation, the ban on Sunday shopping or the initiative of hosting the 2024 Olympic Games.
According to the chairman of the opposition party, such winds are blowing not only in Budapest but in the countryside cities and towns as well which could beat down the Orbanian world.
People go to the streets not only for the freedom of education but to voice their general rejection over the incumbent government - Gyurcsany said, adding: DK's sympathies are wholly to those who express their opinion in a peaceful way.
The question of the electoral system is the most exciting among the political claims - Gyurcsany said. However there is little chance that Fidesz would change the electoral law which was tailored to the ruling party, because it would not be in the interest of those in power, he said.
The former PM mentionned also that he doesn't think that the Socialist PM candidate, Laszlo Botka would want to negotiate with them in the coming months about the electoral cooperation. "We don't bargain, but our door is always open" - he said.
Gyurcsany said that his party would not reject abovo an initiative which would restrict holders of Hungary's highest elected office, the Prime Ministry, to a total of two terms.
Before the forum there was an exposition of billboards which showed all the investments and developments decided during the Gyurcsany-government (2004-2009) financed mostly from EU funds. The former PM said there is nothing to be ashemd of, we don't have to start again or to throw away everything which was before 2010 (the begining of the Orban's rule). The past cannot be deleted, those who tried to do it, failed - he added.
