Gyurcsány does not exclude to become prime minister again

The Chairman of the Democratic Coalition gave a long interview to the Magyar Nemzet, in which he explained that he never felt that his political career ended. The reason why the interview could have been published in the newspaper of Lajos Simicska is that the Chairman of the DK asked this as part of an amicable settlement.

It is cear from the answers that Gyurcsány still does not exclude the possibility to lead the country as prime minister. He told that the success of the opposition parties does not depend on him, however it depends on the MSZP, as the MSZP was the party who stood up from the conference table after László Botka appeared on the scene.
The former prime minister let some issues in obscurity, for example he said that his relation with László Lengyel was always stormy, but he did not specify the raison. He also mentioned that he believed that the Russians are blackmailing Viktor Orbán with something, which could be a public or private issue, but he did not clarify it. He also did not specify which socialist leader gave the Őszöd speech to the opposite party. On the other hand, he stated surely that Viktor Orbán steals, as he could not finance his life and his family from his prime ministerial salary, as there is no explanation for his growing wealthy.
Gyurcsány came up severely against Lajos Simicska, who is the owner of the Magyar Nemzet. The chairman said that Simicska was the representative of the word of the crime. He also mentioned the responsibility of Péter Polt, who would be removed by the opposition parties in case of an electoral win, but he did not clarify how they would remove him from his position.
Gyurcsány believes that the DK will participate in the next parliamentary work with large faction, and if this would be the case they would think over the boycott, what they are applying in these days. As he said, the election will not be fair and decent because of the single-ballot system, the redrawing of the constituencies and the brutal situation of the media, but the victory is still possible.
