PÁRBESZÉD MEP LAUNCHES MOVEMENT FOR JOINT OPPOSITION EP ELECTION CAMPAIGN

 

Párbeszéd MEP Benedek Jávor has launched a movement to promote a broad and strong joint campaign by Hungary’s opposition parties for May’s European parliamentary elections. Addressing a press conference on Friday, Jávor called on the opposition parties to discuss mounting a joint campaign and fielding a joint election list. He also called on civil groups and unions to join the cause. He insisted that a split opposition campaign would only help ruling Fidesz. Jávor said Hungary would have to decide at the election whether it wants to be an active contributor to building a successful Europe “or if its project is about sabotaging this”.
