Speaker of Parliament László Kövér said that providing pensioners with the “greatest possible protection and preference” in line with the economic capabilities of the country is a priority for national politics.
The speaker told the 5th “parliament for seniors” that Europe’s economies and societies were facing challenges comparable to the political regime change of 1990, adding that “pensioners will clearly remember what price the elderly had to pay for the economic and social havoc following the political changes”. He added that political parties should cooperate in order to improve the situation of pensioners rather than consider the matter as rivalry. “We don’t want pensioners to pay the price of the hardships facing us,” Kövér said.
