SMK continues to support Csáky

The Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) has expressed its support for Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration Pál Csáky, despite growing concern from the European Union and domestic MPs.

The party's ruling body yesterday discussed the EU-entry referendum campaign, which Csáky had been responsible for, and party leader Béla Bugár expressed his disappointment at the criticism levelled against his colleague.

This includes accusations that the campaign was not effective, that money had been misspent on unfulfilled contracts, and that Csáky's spokesman's wife had received orders for graphic design connected with the campaign.
