Both the former and the current leader of the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) have been nominated for the party’s top post, the TASR newswire reported.
No other candidates other than former leader Pál Csáky and current party chairman József Berényi are known to have been nominated. While Berényi confirmed his interest in staying as chairman, Csáky (the SMK’s chair from 2007 to 2010) has not said whether he will pursue a return to the post.
Csáky has been nominated by four local party organisations from Veľký Krtíš and Levice districts while Berényi has been nominated by 11 local organisations, including those in Dunajská Streda, Komárno, Nové Zámky, Košice, Rimavská Sobota, Nitra and Bratislava.
SMK is scheduled to hold its congress on April 16 in Veľký Meder and choose its leadership.
