Hungary Ex-Premier Bajnai Plans Return to Politics, Valasz Says

Hungary’s former Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai is planning a return to politics in the autumn, Heti Valasz said, without saying how it got the information.

Bajnai wants to unite the opposition against Prime Minister Viktor Orban, excluding his predecessor, former Premier Ferenc Gyurcsany, according to the Budapest-based magazine. The Socialist Party, the green party Lehet Mas a Politika and the out-of-parliament Szolidaritas movement would be included in Bajnai’s coalition, it said.
