Hungary's PM-elect Orbán unveils cabinet

Hungarian prime minister-elect Viktor Orbán named further members of a streamlined cabinet on Monday. Introducing his new cabinet, Orbán stressed the experience of his new team.

György Matolcsy, an economist, will head a super-ministry in charge of the economy and development.

Sándor Pintér, 62, will reprise his role as interior minister.

Miklós Réthelyi, 71, is to head a new ministry of national resources which encompasses health care, education, culture and youth.

Orbán said he would propose changing the constitution to give the deputy prime minister executive powers as well as introducing the post of deputy ministers.

Zsolt Semjén, 48, head of the Christian Democrats, will be deputy prime minister in charge of general affairs.

Sándor Fazekas, 47, will head the rural development ministry while Tamás Fellegi, 54, will hold the post of minister of national development.

Csaba Hende, 50, will be the defense minister.

Before Fidesz won the election, János Martonyi, 66, was named as the next foreign minister. He was foreign minister in Orbán's government in 1998-2002.

Orbán announced last week his other major appointments. Tibor Navracsics, who is also to be a deputy prime minister, is to head a super ministry of public administration and justice, and Mihály Varga will be a state secretary in charge of the prime minister's office. (MTI-Econews)
