The Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) did not invite representatives of the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) to a meeting of the parliamentary opposition parties on May 6.

Relations in the coalition have soured since the SMK broke ranks with the opposition and voted for the Lisbon Treaty. SMK vice-chair Miklós Duray was not surprised.

"We voted for the Lisbon Treaty, they did not. They probably changed their orientation to a more anti-European one. When they return to the pro-European platform, cooperation may be renewed," Duray told the SITA news agency. SITA
