Népszabadság



The daily Népszabadság was founded in 1956 and is Hungary's most widely read quality newspaper. It originated from the newspaper Szabad Nép. During the times of real Socialism it was regarded as the paper of the sole ruling party, the Hungarian Socialist Workers' Party (MSZMP). After the fall of communism in 1989 it remained close to the follow-up party, the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP). The MSZP holds 27.5 percent of the shares through a foundation. The majority stake (70.4 percent) is owned by the Swiss publisher Ringier. Népszabadság has a markedly international outlook. Renowned intellectuals are published in the weekly supplement hétvége.
