Duray asked to pipe down

A group of 90 ethnic Hungarian intellectuals have appealed to Hungarian-Slovak politician Miklós Duray to be more tempered in his public statements and stop provoking Slovak nationalism. Duray in April attended a pre-election rally for Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán to express support for the right-wing politician, saying that ‘Felvidek’ – the old name for southern Slovakia when it belonged to Hungary – stood behind him. In response, Slovak nationalist MPs called for Duray’s SMK party, a member of Slovakia’s ruling coalition, to be banned, and swore to physically bar Duray from entering parliament when it resumes in mid-May.
