Incumbent Hungarian Democratic Party President, Marko Bela declared on Friday that he endorses the candidacy of Kelemen Hunor for President of the party at the party’s congress in February but said that there are also other people who can occupy this position.

He declared that Hunor is most suitable to occupy the position as he resembles his leadership skills most. He said that even though some consider a disadvantage that Hunor was so close to Bela, in his opinion this was an advantage as Hunor could learn a lot through his experiences.
