Fidesz says former PM's Bajnai wants to introduce highest tax in Europe
Together 2014 formed by Bajnai said in reaction that Rogan's statement reflected a combination of "political dishonesty and professional incompetence".
Rogan said the economic programme of Bajnai's Patriotism and Progress Association includes the reintroduction of tax credit and the transformation of the tax system that guarantees a gain.
According to expert calculations ordered by Fidesz, this will be possible only if a second tax rate of at least 48 percent is introduced. Such a tax rate would encourage people to conceal their income, he added.
Bajnai's proposal is very similar to the tax system that was in force during his term as prime minister in 2009 and it would result in tax increase for nearly two million people, Rogan said.
Together 2014 said its economic policy programme does not include the reintroduction of a 48 percent tax rate. Rogan quoting this figure is "nonsense and a lie."
Instead of correcting bad government, Fidesz is trying to manipulate the public by spreading false news, the association said.
