House Speaker László Kövér said the Hungarian nation, its society and families are doing better today than at any time since the 1989/1990 change in the political system. After being re-elected Speaker of Parliament on Monday, he said it is this improvement and increasing prosperity that is behind the election result. “At the same time, we’re living in times of danger, and the achievements of the past 32 years are endangered by the financial and economic crisis, illegal migration, the pandemic and the war in our neighbourhood,” he said. Kövér was elected speaker in a secret ballot. As the sole candidate, he received 170 votes in favour and 13 against out of the 183 MPs present in the chamber.
