Greens fail in drive to re-nominate state president

The Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance nominated Speaker Pál Schmitt, the Socialist Party András Balogh and Politics Can Be Different (LMP) László Sólyom for the post of president before the midday deadline on Friday.

The nomination of President Sólyom was invalid, however, because LMP were unable to obtain the required number of signatures.

Parliament will elect the new president tomorrow.
