After his election, Tóth said that he would seek to build a “cooperative party which represents traditional leftist values relentlessly”, one which “believes in solidarity, justice, equal opportunities and national cohesion”.
He added that his party should be a “real community” and “offer hope by protecting those persecuted by the establishment”.
He also said that the Socialists should “implacably criticise” the government and become “the driving force” for a government change.
Tóth said it was inevitable that his party should “face the past”.
He argued that Hungary’s Left had been “lazy” and failed to “express and promote its own truth” while ruling Fidesz promoted a “post-fascist world view” and made it popular.
