Orbán: Crisis resistant public administration needed

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán handed over letters of appointment to government commissioners for Budapest and the counties who took their oath of office at a ceremony held in the prime minister's offices, his press chief said on Monday.

Orbán told the commissioners that Hungary needed a crisis-resistant public administration, as the country had contended natural disasters, the Covid-19 pandemic and the effects of war since 2010.

He said tough times lay ahead but the government had already shown that, unlike its opponents, it was capable of handling challenges.

In the face of the economic consequences of an protracted war, “we must protect what we have” and work on preserving the achievements of the past, he said.

“You’ll all be in charge of an office, no doubt, but what you’ll need to show is not an officious attitude but a spirit of partnership when dealing with people and their cases,” he added.
