ORBÁN: CIVIC CIRCLES KEY TO HUNGARY'S CURRENT SUCCESS, STRENGTH

 

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on Friday praised grassroots civic circles and local communities, and said they were key to the strength and success of Hungary and to ruling Fidesz’s entering into power, the PM’s press chief said. Speaking at an event celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Belvárosi Polgári Szalon in downtown Budapest, Orbán said the salon was an example for other such communities in the country: “We must build communities like that everywhere; this way, our opponents will never be able to push Hungary from the path of growth,” Bertalan Havasi cited Orbán as saying.
District 5 mayor Péter Szentgyörgyvölgyi and cabinet chief Antal Rogán also attended the event.
