President János Áder on Friday asked Viktor Orbán, the candidate for prime minister of the Fidesz-KDNP party alliance, to form a new government, state news wire MTI reports.
Orbán accepted the request.
Fidesz-KDNP won 135 mandates in Hungary's 199-seat parliament in general elections on April 3.
After the meeting with Áder at the Sándor Palace, Orbán said he had pledged to form a government that, in terms of its members and as a whole, would be able to defend Hungary in the "decade of danger ahead".
Orbán noted that prices are rising across Europe as a result of the war in Ukraine and said Europe's economies face "hardship" amid signs of an energy crisis, even before recovering fully from the coronavirus crisis.
