Founded in 1877, Népszava is a prestigious left-wing daily. It was originally the official newspaper of the Hungarian Social Democratic Party (MSZDP). During Hungary's socialist period Népszava was seen as the trade unions' paper. Today it supports the opposition Socialists (MSZP). Népszava has been in major financial difficulties several times in recent years.
