Péter Magyar’s new party registered to run for seats in the European Parliament

April 13th, 2024

A left-wing commentator thinks that Péter Magyar may score a significant moral victory over the government if his new TISZA party makes it to the European Parliament and joins the European People’s Party.

The National Electoral Committee added Péter Magyar’s TISZA party to the list of contenders for seats in the European Parliament on Thursday. Magyar took over this ‘dormant’ party rather than founding a new one because to run for the European Elections in June, parties had to be incorporated by the day the date of the vote was announced.

In Népszava, Tamás Rónay rejects opposition opinions that Magyar’s views on the EU are copied from Fidesz’s playbook. He certainly spoke against the idea of a European superstate, Rónay concedes, but argued for putting an end to ceaseless clashes with Brussels and joining the European Prosecutor’s Office. If Magyar’s intention to join the EPP materialises, Rónay adds, it would be a ‘huge blow’ to Prime Minister Orbán who had to leave the strongest European party family three years ago.
