Former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány shared his opinions on the expulsion of journalists from the Parliament, on Viktor Orbán and the Pharaon-case on the ATV Start morning television program. The chairman of the Democratic Coalition (DK) said that he believes he symbolically fell because of the introduction of the visit fee as part of the healthcare reform.
"It is unnecessary that Parliament Speaker László Kövér is dealing with such cases. If this is his biggest problem with Hungarian parliamentarism, then he is misguided about his role. These are meaningless political games.' –said Gyurcsány, referring to the journalists' expulsion from the Parliament. 'Do real political work, do not steal, and answer the questions, this is our job – added the former Prime Minister.
According to Gyurcsány, the ruling Fidesz is robbing the country and the legislative process. We cannot accept that the Hungarian Prime Minister, who has always been a politician, is the richest man in today's Hungary – stated the former PM, who proved his statement by the fact that he received HUF 1,5 million per month as prime minister and it is impossible to buy a villa on the Szabadság-hill or travel on a private airplane on such a salary.
Regarding the healthcare reform, he said that it can only be successful if the Hungarian voters support the reforms: 'I would not make such an extensive reform again without first ensuring the support of the majority of the population. This is the most important experience of my governing period – the former PM stated, who believes that he symbolically fell because of the introduction of the visit fee.
Concerning the Pharaon-case, Gyurcsány said that the assumption that it is a game of the American secret service is unreal, therefore, it is not true that the US planned to "get" the Hungarian government through Pharaon. Nevertheless, he believes that the case of Orbán's neighbour shows that the government is up to its neck in organised crime – cited atv.hu.
