Gergely Gulyás, the prime minister’s chief of staff, said that talks are underway on a daily basis about an agreement with the European Union.
According to MTI, Gulyás said there were no significant professional disputes between the two sides and the European Commission was trying to achieve an agreement that it could politically represent in other European forums. The sides will be able to reach an agreement on certain matters very soon but there are some details that still need to be clarified, he added. It has been agreed that teachers’ wages will be increased to 80 percent of the average wage for degree holders by the end of the current EU financial framework, he said, urging left-wing MPs and MEPs not to make efforts to prevent the increase in teachers’ wages. Gulyás welcomed a recent report by the OSCE which he said essentially established that the parliamentary elections in Hungary had been held at a high standard, in a free, democratic and fair manner.
