PM Orbán: We will not yield to Europe on immigration policy and maintain Hungary as a Hungarian country
The prime minister said voters had underlined their support for the government’s essential targets such as economic growth coupled with fiscal discipline, full employment, support for families, preserving the value of pensions and guaranteeing security
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has revealed that he will reorganise the Prime Minister’s Office when the new government is formed.
During his regular interview slot on Kossuth Radio, he also announced that Mihály Varga, minister for National Economy, will stay on as head of the economic cabinet.
PM Orbán said he wanted to transform the government’s “brain center” and create a different management structure. “Serious negotiations” are under way and will continue over the weekend, he added.
According to MTI, the prime minister said he wanted the government to be formed as soon as possible. However, there were no plans to set up new ministries.
“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” he said. It’s worth keeping the current system with large ministries headed by high-powered officials, he added. The new government will have “some of the same people” while keeping the “old targets unchanged,” he added.
“The people voted to preserve the government’s targets” not for continuity in terms of personnel, he added.
The prime minister added that parliament should pass next year’s budget before the summer break. He said he had already held talks about this with Minister Varga, whom he described as “an extremely talented and experienced minister”.
PM Orbán also said he wanted to sign a comprehensive agreement on the outlook the government can offer to Hungarian women for the next 20-30 years.
“Demographics depend on them; it is their decision,” he said. Having children is a highly personal issue but one that is important to the community, he added.
Commenting on the outcome of the general election, the prime minister said voters had underlined their support for the government’s essential targets such as economic growth coupled with fiscal rectitude, full employment, support for families, preserving the value of pensions and guaranteeing security by “not yielding to Europe in immigration policy and maintaining Hungary as a Hungarian country”.
In light of the announcement that the George Soros funded Open Society Foundations will leave Hungary, the prime minister said “they are crashing out right now”.
“I know they won’t accept the outcome of the election; they will organize all sorts and they have unlimited financial means,” he said.
