ORBÁN TO UNVEIL FAMILY POLICY MEASURES AT STATE OF NATION ADDRESS

 

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is expected to unveil further government measures supporting families at an annual state of the nation address on February 10, daily Magyar Idők said on Saturday. The paper noted that the prime minister said at a press briefing on Thursday that government measures decided on the basis of a national consultation on family policy conducted in November and December would be among the topics he would speak about at the annual address. Orbán is also expected to speak about what is at stake in the European Parliament election coming up in the spring, the paper said. On Thursday, he said Hungary’s goal is to see an anti-immigration majority in all European Union institutions after the election. A meeting of MPs of the governing Fidesz-KDNP alliance will take place on February 13-14, the paper said. The prime minister will deliver an assessment to lawmakers behind closed doors on the evening of February 13. On the following day, family policy related tasks will be assigned, and MPs will discuss preparations for the EP campaign and the topic of migration. The legislative programme for the spring session of parliament is also on the agenda. The two-day meeting will not take place this time in Visegrád, north of the capital, as in earlier years, Magyar Idők said. The location has not been revealed for security reasons, it added.
