There will be a new government formed, mostly with new players and a new structure, it has been announced.

Antal Rogán, the minister heading the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister, said the reshuffle comes amid the government responding to the challenges of migration and the need to protect Hungary’s national sovereignty.

The minister added that Hungary has decided, the people have identified the most important issue of the election, and as a result they have also designated the most crucial issues of the next four years: these are immigration and defending the country’s national sovereignty.

Four years ago there was no migration, and at the time there were not many who wanted a United States of Europe instead of a Europe of Nations, he pointed out.

Today, all these issues are there on the agenda, and therefore a new governmental structure is required to meet these challenges.

He added that the government will finish the work it has carried out to date under the present arrangement, and on Wednesday the prime pinister will request members of the cabinet to render an account of and close the previous term and prepare the documents necessary for handing over their responsibilities.

“If we do not want migration – and the people decided that they want to determine whom they live together with – we must give an answer to the question about how to handle demographic issues,” he highlighted, and pointed out that an even more intensive, even more purposeful family-centered policy is required.
