Leftist columnist suggests two opposition electoral lists

January 25th, 2024

An alt-left commentator finds it obvious that to maximise their chances, opposition parties should run for the forthcoming municipal elections on two parallel electoral liists.

On Mérce, Csaba Tibor Tóth lambasts Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony who gave opposition parties until mid-February to decide to run on a single united list, arguing that this is what opposition-leaning voters want. Tóth retorts that many opponents of the government would never vote for the Democratic Coalition. He therefore welcomes Momentum leader Anna Donáth’s pledge never to run again in common with Ferenc Gyurcsány’s party. A second opposition list, he explains, would offer an acceptable choice to those who oppose both the government and Mr Gyurcsány. Instead of criticising Ms Donáth’s stance, Papp writes, the Mayor should choose between the two opposition alliances that have a chance to pass the 5 percent threshold, as his extremely small Párbeszéd (Dialogue) party and the Socialist Party may not make it to the municipal assemblies on their own.
