Karácsony says opposition unfit to govern

May 20th, 2022

In an interview with an independent online news site, the Mayor of Budapest paints a gloomy picture of the current state of the opposition.

On Válasz, Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony says mutual recriminations among opposition leaders after the lost election reflect the sorry state of the former alliance. Reacting to questions about an article on telex.hu on the ceaseless infighting within the opposition camp during the campaign, he remarks that he is not convinced that ‘voters were that wrong when they refused to elect this opposition to government this time round’. Nevertheless, he still believes Hungary would be better off with the current opposition in government. At the same time, he admits that the opposition’s ‘fitness to govern’ is far below the level required to win an election. He finds consolation in the efficiency with which the same parties that lost the national elections run the capital city.
