picture of Péter Márki-Zay

“We want an opposition victory for our homeland, meaning that Péter Márki-Zay should be our prime minister,” Ferenc Gyurcsány, the president of the Democratic Coalition (DK), posted on social media.

The former Socialist prime minister wrote that the election campaign is “an exciting condensation of politics.”

It takes more of everything to succeed. Among other things, discipline. The Prime Minister-designate is leading us. There is agreement and no public debate. Because in the final stages of the struggle, we don’t talk, we don’t equivocate, just fight.

We think this is an important rule. Péter’s sentences and public appearances represent us. We accomodate ourselves to that. Me as well.

-he wrote.

The politician recalled that they had agreed to look after each other and that the DK, like other parties, was primarily focused on supporting its individual candidates.

“Beyond that, we go over and beyond whatever he, our joint candidate, asks for. Because he’s the captain. We commit ouselves to that,” said Gyurcsány in reference to Péter Márki-Zay, who was the victor in the opposition’s primary election for a joint prime ministerial candidate.
