Parliament to Hold Vote for Prime Minister on Monday

The National Assembly will hold its election for prime minister on May 16, according to an agenda proposal submitted by parliamentary speaker László Kövér.

A majority of parliamentary representatives is needed to elect the prime minister. Since the Fidesz-KDNP coalition holds more than two-thirds of seats in Parliament, there is little doubt that Viktor Orbán will be elected as prime minister of Hungary for the fifth time. Orbán is expected to give a speech after he takes the prime ministerial oath and the National Anthem is played.

An unofficial list of new government members has popped up in the media over the past few days, but a bill detailing the structure of the government and ministries must be submitted to Parliament first. Following this, the parliamentary committees will begin hearings for ministerial candidates. [Magyar Hang]
