Constitution – Socialists aim to change new supreme law

Budapest, April 25 (MTI) – Changing the new supreme law is a basic political aim of the main opposition Socialist party, chairman and group leader Attila Mesterhazy said on Monday.

President Pal Schmitt signed the new constitution on Monday “against many people’s request,” Mesterhazy said in a statement.

The main governing Fidesz party did not dare asking voters whether they wanted a new constitution and whether they wanted it this way because they number of dissatisfied voters is now higher than the number of supporters, he said.

“(Prime Minister) Viktor Orban has introduced measures that harm almost all groups of the society and most of which could be challenged on the basis of the current, democratic constitution,” Mesterhazy said.

It is necessary for the opposition to join forces in order to change the new constitution, Mesterhazy said. A democratic opposition must develop that can offer peace and a normal life to people after the downfall of Fidesz, he added.
