Respondents to a recent Századvég survey have said they want to see national cooperation and not politicking when it comes to handling the novel coronavirus epidemic. Referring to their latest survey, the Századvég Foundation said the vast majority of respondents were looking to Hungary’s dominant political forces to unite, with 87% saying Hungary’s political parties should set aside their disputes. The survey of 1,000 adults found this view reflected across political divides, with 81% of leftist respondents and 88% of centrists supporting that position, Századvég said. Fully 91% of right-wing supporters called for unity and cooperation, it added. According to Századvég, even supporters of the parties most critical of government policies reject political division, with 81% of leftist Democratic Coalition supporters and the same ratio of conservative Jobbik voters saying they were against political divisiveness.
