Known as the third richest man from Hungary, mainly for setting up and running the adult streaming website LiveJasmin, György Gattyán is considering running against current prime minister Viktor Orbán in the next elections.

This was reported on 25 November by Bloomberg. György is the owner of the Luxembourg-based Docler Holding, which gathers a variety of companies in the fields of technology, entertainment, sports and art.

In the run up to the 2022 elections, a six-party opposition alliance has formed to push Orbán out of his seat. The latter has been prime minister of Hungary since 2010 and is known for his national conservatism.

Opposition alliance leader Peter Marky-Zay—a Catholic conservative—promises in its programme to change the constitution, introduce the euro as well as fight corruption.

Delano’s sister publication Paperjam has reached out to Docler Holding for more information.
