President Áder asks PM Orbán to set up new government day before new parliament’s inaugural session

The president said that he would propose at the new parliament’s first session today that the national assembly should re-elect PM Orbán as prime minister

President János Áder asked Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to set up Hungary’s new government a day before the new parliament’s inaugural session in Kossuth square.

On Monday, President Áder said the results of the April 8th election had “made it clear who would have sufficient support to form the new government”.

The president added that he would propose at the new parliament’s first session today that the national assembly should re-elect PM Orbán as prime minister.

According to MTI, PM Orbán accepted the request and said that he would “serve Hungary with loyalty and commitment”.

The new government will work to “ensure Hungary’s security and preserve its Christian culture,” PM Orbán said. He added that he would “use all means to enforce the will of voters they expressed on April 8”.

The new parliament’s inaugural session kicked off this morning outside Parliament.
