SMK schism continues

The Slovak Hungarian Coalition (SMK) vice-chair for strategy, Miklós Duray, says the party leadership is determined to continue negotiations with three MPs who announced on Tuesday, May 26, that they were discontinuing rapprochement talks with the party leadership.

One of the renegade SMK MPs, Béla Bugár, has said he is prepared to wait until the end of this week. The three left the SMK caucus on April 22, complaining about the party’s leadership style and policies. They set an initial deadline of May 16 (when the SMK Republican Council held a session) for substantive change to be ushered in. However, the tensions weren’t resolved at the meeting and another session has since been scheduled for June 13. TASR
