Gyurcsány fires ‘homophobicʼ politician

In Hungary

Ferenc Gyurcsány, former Hungarian Prime Minister and current leader of opposition party Democratic Coalition, fired László Sütő from his party after the politician wrote a “homophobic” entry on his Facebook page, Hungarian news portal 444.hu reported.

Sütő, who graduated as a medical doctor, wrote a Facebook entry that ended with the following line: “My tolerance goes as far as I believe [homosexuality] is an illness.”

The party said in an announcement that the management of the Democratic Coalition clearly does not accept “people and views” inside the party that “differentiate between people” based on their “sexual identity”. Gyurcsány also announced that he would be attending Budapest’s Pride march on July 11.
