PÁRBESZÉD CO-LEADER TORDAI TO BECOME PARLT GROUP LEADER

 

Bence Tordai, who has served as co-leader of opposition Párbeszéd-Greens, will replace Tímea Szabó as the party’s parliamentary group leader, the party said in a statement on Thursday. Párbeszéd’s congress on Jan 20 presented its list of candidates for the upcoming European Parliament elections, headed by former MEP Benedek Jávor. Szabó and Jávor will team up with Gergely Karácsony, the party’s co-leader who is also the mayor of Budapest, to oversee the implementation of Párbeszéd’s strategy and operations, the party said. The party’s board has nominated Richárd Barabás, the party’s spokesperson, to fill Tordai’s post.
