Péter Márki-Zay Setting Up New Political Party

“We are forming a party of civilians,” wrote Péter Márki-Zay in a Facebook post on Monday morning, adding that issues related to setting up the party will be addressed when his organization, the Everybody’s Hungary Movement, elects officers at the end of May.

The former nominee for prime minister of the joint opposition claimed that the Everybody’s Hungary Movement, and the civilians it represents, were strongly disadvantaged during the elections, as cooperation with the opposition meant that they could not assert their interests through a single party.

Márki-Zay won a seat in Parliament on the opposition’s party list, but indicated after the elections that he would not accept it, and instead keep his current job as mayor of Hódmezővásárhely. [HVG]
