Gergely Arató, the deputy group leader of the opposition Democratic Coalition (DK), on Friday criticised Viktor Orbán’s incoming cabinet which he said “no longer keeps up appearances by maintaining ministries for education, health care and the environment”.
Arató issued a statement in response to Orban’s press chief announcing the list of ministers after the incoming prime minister concluded talks on forming his next cabinet earlier in the day. Orbán, the leader of the ruling Fidesz party,
won a fourth consecutive term at the parliamentary election held on April 3.
In his statement, Arató said it transpired from the list of names that there would be no ministries assigned to education, health care, welfare and environmental protection, areas he said were deemed “unnecessary” by the new government.
