Csáky admits mistakes in campaign

Deputy PM for EU integration Pál Csáky admitted he made some mistakes during the cabinet's campaign ahead of the referendum on EU entry last month, but he refused to specify what he thought he had done wrong.

"I made several [mistakes], but others, not me, should talk about them," Csáky said at a press conference on June 9.

The campaign was heavily criticised as uninventive, bureaucratic, and dry, and after the referendum, some politicians even requested Csáky's resignation over what they saw as his inability to handle the EU agenda.

The coalition's senior body, the Coalition Council, composed of representatives of all four cabinet parties, is expected to discuss what needs to be improved in the EU agenda today.
