Bokros prepares to launch new party; UK’s Conservatives seen as model

MEP Lajos Bokros will found a new liberal-conservative party in late April, ATV reported on Wednesday.
The former finance minister will be joined by former public administration state secretary József Kajdi, former Democratic Forum MP Erzsébet Pusztai and László Török, head of CIB Bank Hungary in 2005-09.

Kajdi told reporters that they intend to pursue capitalism-friendly policies and that their international role model will be the UK’s Conservative Party.

No final decision has been made on the party’s name.

      This party may not be such a bad thing, will probably target Fidesz voters who are feeling so-so about Fidesz these days.

        He could steal votes from those supporting Jobbik at the moment too, if he promises an end to sleaze and cronyism without the racism and blaming outsiders for everything that’s wrong with Hungary

          Haha, I wish this postcommie slug Bokros good luck..

  • John
