Languages of publication
The author analyzes in his study the main political line of the Provincial Christian Socialist Party (OKSzP), one of the two major Hungarian minority parties represented in Czechoslovak Parliament in the period of years 1933-1935, under the leadership of Count Janos Esterhazy, who was elected as its new chairman in December 1932. The political line of the OKSzP is explained in a broader context of the Hungarian minority's policy in prewar Czechoslovakia. Attention is particularly paid to Esterhazy's explanation of the negativist opposition policy of the Hungarian Christian Socialists. The ongoing talks of political representatives of the Hungarian minority about a broader autonomist block with the Slovakian autonomists are summarized and the prospects of rather lukewarm relations of Hungarian minority politicians to the Sudeten German parties in the first half of the 1930s are outlined. To conclude, the results achieved by the Hungarian minority parties in the fourth Parliament elections in prewar Czechoslovakia are summarized and the election of the new OKSzP Chairman to the Lower House of National Assembly and his first appearance in the Assembly are mentioned.
