JOBBIK, MOMENTUM, LMP TO FIELD JOINT CANDIDATE FOR DEBRECEN MAYOR

 

The opposition Jobbik, Momentum, and LMP parties will field Ábel Csanád Kőszeghy as their joint candidate for the post of mayor in Debrecen, in eastern Hungary, in the upcoming municipal elections, representatives of the three parties announced. Kőszeghy is Jobbik’s group leader in the municipal assembly of Debrecen. László Mándi, Momentum’s local leader, commended the candidate based on his municipal experience with special regard to his post as financial committee head. Kőszeghy said that the three-party alliance “continues to be open towards other parties and civil organisations”, therefore the list of all candidates would not be published until later. He added that talks with the Socialist Party and leftist Democratic Coalition have “run aground” and “there is no point” in further negotiations with their local organisations.
