GULYÁS ON MAGYAR: 'THE BALLOON HAS BURST'

 

Gergely Gulyás, the head of the prime minister’s office, responding to allegations made by one-time government insider, Péter Magyar, who has turned against the Fidesz-led administration, dismissed Magyar as “the new Márki-Zay”, the one-time prime ministerial candidate of the joint opposition. “The only difference is that Péter Márki-Zay did not terrorise his wife,” Gulyás said in a Facebook post. “Much ado about nothing,” he wrote, adding that “the balloon has burst!” “A family dispute involving an intimidated wife doesn’t have a bearing on public life,” he added.
