HUNGARIAN OPPOSITION LEADER DETAILS PROGRAM. Viktor Orban,
the head of the opposition Young Democrats-Hungarian Civic Party,
said on 8 April that he will nullify the Hungarian-Slovak agreement
on the disputed Gabcikovo-Nagymaros dam if his party comes to
power in the May elections. Orban, who tops opinion polls as the
most popular politician in Hungary, said his party would also reduce
taxes, set up incentives to aid small and medium-sized companies,
and create a smaller, more effective parliament. He also said his
party opposes a bill allowing foreigners to buy property in Hungary.
