Telex reports that Julianna Lékó, mother of internationally-reknown chess grandmaster Péter Lékó, is running as the far-right Our Homeland party candidate in Csongrád-Csanád County’s first electoral district in next year’s elections.

The elder Lékó promises to “fight for the region’s inhabitants with the same ‘Mama Tiger’ vehemence” that she devoted to the education of her two sons as a single mother. The district encompasses part of the southern city of Szeged.
