Attila Nagy, head of the national election office NVI, was accompanied by András Téglási, head of the national election committee NVB, during a meeting with observers of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, OSCE, on Tuesday.
According to MTI, a four-member delegation of the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) was led by Head of the Election Department Meaghan Fitzgerald. The OSCE delegation is paying a visit to Hungary on January 17-21 to gather information in preparation for the country’s general election in the spring. They are scheduled to meet representatives of several organisations, parliament and the government, NVI said in a statement. Based on Tuesday’s talks, the NVI and NVB heads expressed their trust that high-level professional cooperation will be maintained between the sides and the OSCE/ODIHIR will send observers to Hungary for the April election, NVI said.
Nagy said he had assured the OSCE of NVI’s dedication to cooperation and added that it was important that the observers should carry out their tasks in an objective fashion, the statement said. Téglási expressed hope that their cooperation will be constructive, it added.
