According to the program, Hungary's situation is grave. The present government created "subjects" (alattvalók) from citizens, and it serves only the interests of the Christian-conservative middle class. Democratic Coalition (DK) wants a western type of country and wants to create "a new European world." "The DK's program doesn't promise immediate improvements or that the citizens' lives will be a great deal better after 2014. We are aware that the heritage of Orbán will require years of pain. It will be necessary to take steps that might affect certain groups in the electorate, certain sectors, and certain areas of the country. We want to talk about these possible developments frankly," says Ferenc Gyurcsány, whose signature is affixed to the document.
