Possible launch of green party in Oct

Writer András Lányi, former head of the civic association Védegylet, plans to establish a new green party Living Chain Movement from October. Védegylet has been known this year as the chief supporter of President László Sólyom when he was nominated for his position. Védegylet had debates about creating a party to have a bigger word in politics, but then decided to remain an NGO. However, Lányi's decision splits the association as his new party will surely be closely linked with Védegylet and President Sólyom in people's mind. (MH 5) M.K.
