Former Socialist government politicians criticized left-wing parties. Katalin Szili spoke at a conference in Budapest that he believed that the left was not affected. According to the Prime Minister's agency, the left crisis is also due to a lack of unified and contradictory principles.
By establishing a common list for left-wing parties in the 2014 elections, more than 26 percent of votes were announced. Four years later, however, they have lost their popularity again. The support of the MSZP and Democratic Coalition dialogues, together with 17 percent, barely exceeded.
The decline of the left has begun long ago – said Katalin Szili, former vice-chairman of MSZP at a conference on the situation of the left-wing parties. Under the mandate of the current Prime Minister, the socialists began to reject a referendum on dual citizenship on a hill in 2004, which was ultimately unsuccessful. The former speaker said that the Left Crisis is also a reason why it does not represent unifying and contradictory principles.
According to the head of the View Institute, MSZP and DK gave a bad answer to migration, so new masses turned away from them. According to Samuel Ágoston Mraz, left-wing parties in Hungary can not participate in political competition in front of governmental parties.
