MSzP leader to recommend Gyurcsány

István Hiller, Chairman of the senior governing Socialist Party (MSzP), said yesterday that he would recommend incumbent prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsány as the party's PM candidate before the general elections scheduled for next spring. Addressing a forum of left-wing municipal leaders at Balatonszemes, Hiller said he would recommend Gyurcsány for the post at a party congress scheduled to open the Socialists' election campaign next February. Citing the latest public opinion polls, Hiller said that MSzP had narrowed its gap behind the opposition Fidesz party from 10-12 points to 2-4 from summer to mid-September. (MTI)
