It appears that Miklós Fekete from the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) got a little closer to ruling party Fidesz than his party would have liked.

MSZP’s board unanimously agreed to suspend then expel from the party the representative from Tatabánya Municipality for voting with Fidesz on a number of local issues over the past few months.

“We don’t tolerate collaboration,” said MP Zita Gurmai, who initiated the procedure.

Fekete has until Nov. 15 to appear the decision, so the expulsion isn’t a done deal yet, but Gurmai doubted that the situation would change.
