Blair backs Hungarian Socialist PM election campaign
font size    

British Prime Minister Tony Blair gave his endorsement to Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany at a Socialist Party rally in Budapest on Friday.

Blair, invited by the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) to its election rally, said "Yes to the MSZP" and praised Gyurcsany for the role he had played in the European Union (EU)'s recent budget settlement.

Hungary should be proud of its achievements over the past few years, Blair added.

Blair and Gyurcsany established a good relationship at talks on the EU budget in Budapest in December.

Blair outlined the similarity of objectives between his Labor Party and the MSZP, saying both parties focus on the need for ensuring economic growth while retaining social equity and security.

Blair also noted that it had been a wise decision for Britain to open up its labor market for employees of other EU members, as they proved to be a contribution to the British economy.

Blair also stated that education reform is the key to economic growth, adding that his country had realized the importance of focusing on talent and technology. "Labor is a party of equity and fairness, but at the same time a party supporting the ambitions of the individual," he said.
