Leaders of the united opposition coalition have agreed on a common decision-making and implementation framework for the election campaign, according to statements released by the parties.

The new framework will allow the parties to conduct a joint campaign, which will be led by a new Campaign Council. The council will include the Democratic Coalition, Jobbik, LMP, Everybody’s Hungary Movement, Momentum, the Hungarian Socialist Party, and Párbeszéd.

According to the statement, the task of the Campaign Council will be to organize preparations for the 2022 Parliamentary elections and run the campaign.

The opposition right-wing, non-partisan mayor of Hódmezővásárhely, Péter Márki-Zay, won the prime ministerial primary elections at the beginning of October, meaning he will face Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in 2022. Pollsters Závecz and Medián both have the joint opposition coalition slightly ahead of ruling parties Fidesz-KDNP.
