Vol. 1, No. 24, 5 May 1997
HUNGARIAN OPPOSITION PARTY LEADER REFUSES TO
RESIGN. Gyorgy Giczy, leader of the Christian Democratic
People's Party (KDNP), says he is the legitimate chairman
of the party and wants to run again for that position,
Hungarian media reported. The Supreme Court recently
annulled the results of the December 1996 elections to the
KDNP leadership and reinstated Janos Latorcai as party
chairman. But at a 2 May meeting of the party's regional and
national representatives, Giczy rejected appeals that he
should refrain from running again for the party's
chairmanship. The meeting decided that new elections
should be held by the end of June.
