Botka calls on leftist opposition parties to band together in 2018 election

Addressing a meeting of the Socialist Party‘s board on Satùrday, Botka insisted that other opposition parties were more preoccùpied with their own political sùrvival than with working to ùnseat the government.
“If our goal is indeed to change the government, then we have to be clear the only way to do so is in an alliance,” Botka, who is also the mayor of Szeged, said. Any party that fails to recognise this does not believe in winning, he added.
