Kósa announced at a press conference that he was elected by the faction through a “great majority” and that he will hold the position until the end of the governing cycle.

In response to a query about the tenuous relationship between Rogán and Cabinet Chief János Lázár, Kósa said he is sometimes surprised about the news he hears regarding the two, and feels that most press reports lack any valid evidence.
