Socialist Workers Party of Hungary
The Socialist Workers Party of Hungary (Hungarian: Magyarországi Szocialista Munkáspárt) was a political party in Hungary. The party was founded by social democrats and communists in 1925, and led by István Vági. Unlike the established Hungarian Social Democratic Party, the Socialist Workers Party sought to mobilize mass movements and agrarian struggles.
Imre Nagy, the future prime minister and leader of the 1956 Revolution, was involved in organizing the underground MSZMP chapter in his home town of Kaposvár. The Hungarian Socialist Workers' Party he helped establish during the Revolution was similarly named.
