MEP of the opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) Klára Dobrev has called for cooperation of the opposition parties in the next election scheduled for 2022. Dobrev said that now the job of the parties is not to compete with each other but to show that “after a decade of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s autocratic rule”, a responsible, pro-European, pro-republican opposition capable of governing the country is born. She stressed that DK sees itself as a partner and not as a leader of the collaboration. A joint offer must be made to Hungary and a joint programme given to voters, she said. “We need a joint opposition prime ministerial candidate, a joint party list and a joint opposition candidate in all constituencies,” she said.
