Gyurcsány: Bajnai's umbrella did not open, although the rain is pouring down

Six months ago, the former Prime Minister supported the candidacy of Gordon Bajnai for head of government, because at that time, the idea was still that Together 2014 would be an umbrella organization. However, that umbrella - even though it's pouring down - did not open, and Together 2014 (T14) has become one of the competing parties. The chairman of the Democratic Coalition party believes that the leaders of the MSZP and the T14 should urgently stop discrediting each other in front of the public.
