Csáky: Slota wouldn't pose a problem if out of power

SNS chairman Ján Slota wouldn't represent a big problem as a personality and politician if he didn't hold a position of power, said Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) leader Pál Csáky in an interview published for the HirExtra news website on September 30.

SNS chairman Ján Slota wouldn't represent a big problem as a personality and politician if he didn't hold a position of power, said Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) leader Pál Csáky in an interview published for the HirExtra news website on September 30.

Csáky said that the problem is that SNS nominees control three important ministries: education, construction and regional development and environment. In the case of the Education Ministry, Csáky said, the nominee is a person whose worldview is different from what is desired in 21st century Europe.

Csáky also pointed out that the legal protection in Europe regarding anti-Hungarian movements is under-developed and ineffective. The most effective tool of this kind at present is dialogue between the Party of European Socialists (PES) and the governing Smer party, Csáky said. He suggested that the EU prepare and approve a minority rights charter. TASR
