Budapest (MTI) – The opposition Dialogue for Hungary party (PM) will launch a consultation drive about the new “propaganda ministry” to be headed by outgoing Fidesz group leader Antal Rogan, a spokesman said on Sunday.
Starting on Monday, the party will ask people’s opinion about the new cabinet office to aid the prime minister’s work, Rogan’s “property deals” and the state residency bond scheme, Richard Barabas told MTI.
The questions will be posted on the party’s website and on Facebook, he said.
The government has already spent 80 billion forints (EUR 259m) in taxpayers’ money on promoting itself in the public service media, and Rogan will be elected “propaganda minister” from Monday, Barabas said.
His ministry will have another 25 billion forints to spend on “continued poisoning of people’s minds,” he added.
Antal Rogan will take his oath during Monday’s plenary session of parliament.
