Opponents

  • Mr. Gyurcsány has a pronounced flippant speech-style, which - as opponents think - alienates common people.
  • The origin of his wealth is regularly questioned by the political right.
  • A person named "Gyurcsanyi" has been mentioned by Attila Kulcsár, the main defendant in the high-profiled "K&H Equities" money laundering scandal in Hungary. The prime minister denies he had any connections with this case.
