DONÁTH: 'WE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD'

 

The Momentum party will “continue to build”, Anna Donáth, the leader of the party’s EP election list, said in Budapest early on Monday, adding that Momentum had won seats in all but one of the county assemblies, with over 20 percent in Pest county. Assessing the results of Sunday’s local and European parliamentary elections, Donáth noted that Momentum also won a number of mayoral seats, in the 6th, 8th and 14th districts of Budapest, as well as in several rural localities. She thanked the 120,000 voters for their support in the European parliamentary elections, in which Momentum failed to reach the parliamentary threshold, adding that Momentum would carry on its work “because it has pledged to represent them”.
