András Jámbor, the candidate of the Szikra Movement, who won more than 1,400 votes for Anett Csordás, the second place winner of the constituency pre-election, was also a huge success compared to the preliminary expectations.
András Jámbor (Szikra-MSZP-P) 3626 votes
Anett Csordás (C8-Momentum-MMM) 2220 votes
Daniel Mannhalter (DK Liberals) 2056 votes
Márta Demeter (Jobbik-ÚK) 815 votes
András Jámbor certainly started the pre-election with the most characteristic left-wing program. In his program it also includes the suppression of the power of capital, the strengthening of trade unions, the promotion of democracy at work and the democratization of the media, and the recognition of the caring profession and the greening of the economy.
One of the most exciting battles in any case took place in this district: four candidates competed in the pre-election, two have serious local involvement and came from an active, civil / left movement, and a nationally known politician appeared in the 6th constituency of Budapest.
In addition to Demeter, who was recently transferred to Jobbik, and Dániel Manhalter from the SE, Anett Csordás, who is a candidate for the C8 Association of Civilians for Józsefváros, who is supported by Momentum, also ran for the candidacy.
They have been fighting for the rights of home nurses and people with disabilities for many years. In 2014, he and his colleagues made it possible for a special surgical procedure for the disabled to be available in Hungary with TB support, and in 2018, they achieved that the benefits of more than 18,000 home helpers approached the minimum wage.
András Jámbor a Gauge founder and former editor-in-chief, supports several left-wing local government election candidates in 2019. With his pious political activism, he has been present such information in Hungarian public life for 10 years. He has already organized several demonstrations, including a demonstration of solidarity for the Student City against Fudan University. He is currently working alongside Kiss Ambrus, the deputy general mayor responsible for the budget of the Metropolitan Municipality.
Candidate Csordás and Pious have important embeddedness in the district, unlike their DK and Jobbik opponents. Márta Demeter is in the second term in the parliament, she has been on the list both times in the Parliament, where she took a seat first in the MSZP faction, then independently, and later in the LMP faction. He recently drew the attention of the press by announcing that he would gain another seat in his district, sitting in the Jobbik faction in parliament. Dániel Manhalter has recently joined party politics in the colors of DK, however, he has been cooperating in the party for a long time, working since 2016 as a communications consultant for the Democratic Coalition.
The goal of the 2022 parliamentary elections in the district is a very serious chance of a common opposition candidate winning based on the experience of previous years. In 2018, Máté Kocsis won a seat in such a way that the opposition as a whole managed to collect well more votes than the Fidesz candidate, but the votes were much fragmented among the parties. In 2019, however, in the municipal elections, the two districts of the capital, which form the 6th OEVK, came under opposition leadership: the VIII. district András Pikó, the IX. and Krisztina Baranyi was elected mayor in the district.
Earlier in the Partizan show, there was a heated debate between the four candidates who talked about the most pressing problems in the district. While Demeter (who says more police and cameras are needed on the streets for public cleanliness) and Manhalter (creating a district guard) are more likely to see the problem of homelessness as a law enforcement issue, civil nomination is more of a social position on the issue. Csordás proposed the establishment of a national rental housing program and social housing agencies, and Jámbor would make the minimum wage tax-free in addition to the construction of rental housing. During the debate, similar views were reached on solutions to the housing crisis, but differences in party politics emerged in terms of credibility, public safety and accountability.
