June 14, 1989

Hungary's Communist Party opened talks with the opposition on moves toward multi-party democracy, and party chief Karoly Grosz said the discussions could lead to a new ruling coalition. The talks, involving the government and representatives of Hungary's nine largest independent parties and groups, are expected to last several months. Participants will hammer out ground rules for Hungary's first free elections in more than 40 years, due by mid-1990, and debate Hungary's economic and social troubles.
