A Hungarian buyer compared the prices and concluded that Slovakia became cheaper than Hungary, at least considering food prices.
According to his video uploaded to TikTok, the customer did the shopping in a Billa store. That is a mall considered to be among the more expensive ones in Hungary’s northern neighbour, Pénzcentrum wrote.
According to the video, the buyer met with the following prices:
Most of them are cheaper than in Hungary. For example, the average price of spaghetti was HUF 846 in Hungary based on the Hungarian Central Statistical Office in January, instead of HUF 565, which is the price in Slovakia. But Barilla costs HUF 1,400 in Hungary, the video maker said.
Index.hu writes that global food prices have been falling for eleven months. However, in Hungary, the trend is the opposite.
Here is the video:

The opposition Jobbik-Conservatives party has demanded that teachers should be granted a 50 percent pay rise without delay, and slammed the government’s plans to introduce an evaluation system which the party thinks could result in reduced salaries. Koloman Brenner, the deputy group leader of the party, said on Facebook on Saturday the planned system had been completed without negotiations with the teachers themselves, and full introduction of the regime from next year on “could have financial ramifications”.
Jobbik-Conservatives consider teachers “responsible professionals rather than servants that could be dismissed at any time”, Brenner said, adding that under the new system “Fidesz delegates” supervising schools could “decide who should receive a higher or smaller salary”. Jobbik-Conservatives also proposes that an earlier system of school supervisors should be reintroduced “to support teachers’ work” rather than just exercise control over them.
