Hungarian opposition parties join forces for full cooperation
In their last meeting of the year, the presidents of Hungary’s opposition parties made the decision to nominate a joint party list in the 2022 elections, thus expressing the nation’s unity which will bring a change of government and a change of an era for Hungary.
By making this decision, the opposition party presidents set the framework for their cooperation: they will nominate joint candidates in the 106 single-member districts, a joint prime ministerial candidate and a joint list as well as present a joint programme to replace the Orbán government in order to give the nation what was promised at the time of Hungary’s democratization: freedom and welfare.
The opposition party presidents also signed the document titled Guarantees of Era Change to define the terms of nominating a joint list and to declare the creation of an independent, liveable and proud Hungary as the objective of their alliance.
To achieve this goal, the parties forming the joint list committed not to nominate such candidates who had been involved in any corruption related criminal acts and had collaborated with Fidesz, i.e, the party which refuses to give people a helping hand and wage subsidies even in a crisis but bleeds out opposition-led towns and cities by cutting the local business tax, thus making it even more difficult for them to protect their inhabitants.
The party presidents pledged to end the government’s practice of turning Hungarians against each other. They also committed to achieve welfare and social peace, cleanse the political sphere from corruption, restore the rule of law and facilitate coming to terms with the past, including releasing the Communist-era secret police files.
The responsibility for our nation binds us together and this responsibility is stronger than anything. Today the opposition alliance has been formed.
