Five Suspects Hauled into Court for Forging Election Endorsements

Five people appeared in court in suspicion of breaking the election law, announced the Prosecutor General’s Office. Three parliamentary candidates were charged with falsifying endorsement signature sheets in Komárom-Esztergom County’s 3rd electoral district. All of the suspects have declared their innocence.

According to the office, two of the aspiring candidates were unable to come up with enough endorsement signatures to get on the ballot, while the third suspect did manage to get on the ballot, managing to get at least 500 valid signatures.

The statement did not reveal which parties the candidates were members of. [HVG]
