Csáky rejects Duray's accusations about Bugár’s cooperation with secret police

The newly-elected Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) chairman Pál Csáky, speaking in Bratislava on April 13, rejected accusations made by the party’s vice-chairman, Miklós Duray, that former SMK leader Béla Bugár collaborated with the communist-era secret police (StB).

"This can only be understood as his (Duray's) individual personal view," Csáky said at a press conference, at which he sat next to his predecessor Bugár.

He also said that he appreciated everything Bugár has done for the party. At the same time, the SMK leader apologized for what he referred to as his 'not always appropriate' remarks about his predecessor before the party’s leadership election on March 31.

He believes that the struggle for posts in the SMK leadership is now over, however. Bugár said that he views the party's attitude towards him as satisfactory, and that he does not expect a personal apology from Duray.
