KDH names post-election partners

The ruling coalition Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) has said it foresees a political partnership among right-wing parties following September 2002 elections, and has promised not to attack any of these parties during its pre-election campaign. Ethnic Hungarian leader Béla Bugár, whose SMK party was included among the KDH’s possible allies, says he wants to see acts rather than words before he credits the Christian Democrats. The SMK has been angered recently by the KDH’s determination to force a pro-Slovak law through parliament in answer to a controversial law from Budapest.
