Gyurcsany's DK vows to fight corruption if voted into power

The left-wing opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) party will initiate a package of anti-corruption laws and promote the independence of the judiciary in the event of winning the 2018 general election, DK's deputy leader László Varju told a press conference.

The Fidesz government's predecessor had enacted legislation to eliminate conflicts of interest preventing government officials, lawmakers or their relatives from bidding for EU funds, he said, adding that after coming to power in 2010, Fidesz scrapped the law in order to seize EU development monies, said Varju. "It's now hard to keep up with which relative of which Fidesz politician is in receipt of millions of forints in EU funding," he said.
