SZÁVAY RESIGNS FROM POSTS OF JOBBIK DEPUTY GROUP LEADER, PARLIAMENTARY NOTARY

 

Deputy group leader of conservative opposition Jobbik and parliamentary notary István Szávay said that he had resigned from both of his posts with immediate effect. Commercial news channel Hír TV presented on Wednesday a sound recording in which Szávay told fellow party members at a congress to re-elect officials that he had verbally and physically insulted a woman in a pub for saying he was a “stinking Nazi”. He later confirmed that the audio recording including anti-Semitic comments was authentic but stated that he was only joking when he said that he had physically insulted her.
In a message posted on his Facebook page, Szávay said he had informed Jobbik group leader Márton Gyöngyösi about his resignation which Gyöngyösi accepted.
