October 09, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters called for the ouster of the Socialist prime minister because of his admission on a leaked tape that he had lied to Hungary about the economy.

Protesters who have gathered outside parliament pressing for the removal of Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany since Sept. 17 were joined Friday by the nation's largest center-right opposition group, which promised to continue the rallies until Gyurcsany is ousted.
