Szabolcs Kerék-Bárczy of the opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) is quitting the party, DK said without elaborating. Anonymous sources close to DK said Kerék-Bárczy had recently had a number of political and personal disagreements with the party. Further, news portal 168ora.hu published an article by him criticising the opposition as a whole and specifically DK. According to state news agency MTI, he did not inform DK beforehand about the article, and so the DK board asked him to consider resigning. Kerék-Bárczy wrote in the article that although the left-wing co-operation of 2014 failed and lost the general election that year, the left-wing leaders in charge of that campaign are still in key positions today. He said DK’s strategy of trying to become the leading left-wing party before pivoting to the centre in the hope of winning the election had failed.
