The past ten years “were a waste of time”, Ágnes Kunhalmi told a press conference streamed online, citing low wages and high inflation. There will be municipal elections in 2024, which is important, Kunhalmi said, calling for talks on cooperation among opposition parties and civil groups.
She also noted that EP elections will also be held next year, saying that “there is no life for Hungary outside the EU”.
Imre Komjáthi, the party’s other co-leader, said his party would offer Hungarians security because “Hungarians suffer most from the lack of it.”
Komjáthi pledged to ensure stable financing to national health care based on proportionate tax levies.
Among other measures, he pledged to reduce the VAT on basic foodstuffs to zero percent, increase pensions across the board and offer pensioners a one-off payment of 205,000 forints (EUR 532).
Among measures to help entrepreneurs in planning their businesses ahead, Komjáthi pledged to keep tax laws unchanged over a period of time.
