Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has written a letter to retired Hungarians ensuring them their pensions are safe and that gas prices will not rise for small household consumers, Orbán's spokesman Péter Szijjártó said.
The letters will be sent by the National Pension Directorate and should arrive in pensioners' postboxes by next week at the latest, Szijjártó said.
Orbán writes in the letter that the way pension savings play into the hands -- without the knowledge of pensioners -- of private investors is “unacceptable trickery”. For this reason, the government took measures, without delay, to rescue pensions and make them secure for the long term, he writes. (MTI – Econews)
