Hódmezővásárhély Mayor Péter Márki-Zay has accepted an invitation to meet with János Lázár, the mayor wrote on Facebook.
Márki-Zay, the united opposition’s candidate for prime minister, also ran as individual candidate in the 2022 elections in the electoral district around Hódmezővásárhely, but was bested by Fidesz’s Lázár, also a former mayor of the southern Hungarian town and a former member of the Orbán government.
Prior to the April 3 elections, Lázár said Márki-Zay would be a “political corpse” after the votes were counted. On Wednesday, he invited Márki-Zay to a joint work meeting. [Telex]
