Government coalition talks continued on Wednesday with agreements reached on education, farming and Hungary's system of local government, Gábor Kuncze, who heads junior coalition partner SzDSz, announced after the talks.
No agreement has been reached yet on the healthcare sector and economic policy, He said. Kuncze said the coalition would have to reach agreements before SzDSz's party conference on May 28, in which case the new government could be set up by June 15.
”Current education minister Bálint Magyar has presented the education program for the next four years, which, after some debate and minor changes, both parties now accept,” he said. Agreements were also reached on the system of local government. However, changes to the system will require a two-thirds majority in parliament, meaning some of the opposition will have to support the measures.
