Nagy prefers a political solution

Military leaders plan a massive attack on the group fighting at Corvin Lane but Imre Nagy overrides them in favor of a political solution.

In the late afternoon during a radio broadcast, Imre Nagy acknowledges the uprising as a national democratic revolution and that the population’s anger is justified, announces that Soviet troops would leave Budapest, as well as that the ÁVH secret police are to be disbanded.
