The Momentum party assembly elected MEP Anna Donáth head of the party on Sunday. In her speech to the assembly, Donáth said Momentum was a “liberal, freedom-loving party with an unshakeable belief in human dignity.” She said she was proud to lead Momentum, “a community ready to serve and to stand up to those wanting to rule others, to corruption”. “We have the task of bursting the populists’ balloon.” Regarding the local and European parliamentary elections in 2024, Donáth said Momentum would support all “acceptable” joint opposition candidates and propose a primary election where there is no agreement. She said she was initiating talks with the opposition parties.
