At DK's campaign event, former Prime Minister and DK's chairman said that those who wish for a stronger Europe managed to acquire a majority in the European Parliament. Ferenc Gyurcsány added that an election is not an election if press is not free, and by taking control of the media, the government has taken away society's ability to choose their representatives freely. The stake of this election according to DK's chairman was Fidesz's two-thirds majority, which they have lost along with a million voters. Gyurcsány noted that DK's campaign was about "real things," they did not walk into the trap Fidesz set by pushing the topic of migration.
DK's lead candidate Klára Dobrev promised to work for a United States of Europe. She also mentioned that she will further the cause of protecting the environment, and she will focus on social issues.
