SMK organisation slams court verdict as politically motivated

The district organisation of the opposition Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) accused the Constitutional Court of issuing a politically motivated decision related to the election of Dunajská Streda’s mayor in December 2006.

The district organisation of the opposition Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) accused the Constitutional Court of issuing a politically motivated decision related to the election of Dunajská Streda’s mayor in December 2006.

All members of the organisation, apart from Peter Pázmány, who is Dunajská Streda’s mayor and SMK district organisation head, signed a letter alleging that a smear campaign launched against Pázmány several months ago, as well as the recent police intervention against fans at the football stadium in Dunajská Streda, created an atmosphere that allowed for the ruling.

"We protest against such politically motivated actions," said József Kvarda, deputy chairman of the SMK regional organisation. SITA
