The deputy chairman of the opposition Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK), Pál Csáky, will run against the party's current leader, Béla Bugár, at a special congress that will elect the party’s new chairman on March 31.
Csáky made his decision after discussing his potential candidacy with roughly a hundred people from both inside and outside the party. He wants to present a 15 point agenda to the party's congress delegates in which he promises changes in party management, more transparency, more professionalism, more involvement of regional structures in the decision-making process, and the preparation of a new generation of SMK politicians.
Bugár welcomed the deputy chairman’s decision.
