SMK rejected the agreement on cooperation with Most-Híd

The parties representing the Hungarian minority originally planned to create a joint slate with another political subject.

The leadership of the Party of the Hungarian Community (SMK) has turned down the pre-election cooperation agreement with Most-Híd and the Hungarian Christian-Democratic Alliance (MKDSZ-MKDA) to form a joint party. It was supposed to be called the Party of Regions Most MK, and its slate was to be created by MKDSZ-MKDA, without the chairs of SMK and Most-Híd taking the top posts.

SMK turned down the proposal due to the changing political situation, its spokesperson Róbert Králik said.

“It’s still a priority for SMK to create the widest cooperation of Hungarian parties, political and apolitical groups, which is why, with regard to the opinions of our district structures and our voters, we’ll initiate the continuation of talks attended by all five Hungarian political parties,” Králik said, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
