Gergely Gulyas, the head of the Prime Minister's Office, will take over the tasks of Families Minister Katalin Novák, who tendered her resignation to accept a nomination to serve as Hungary's next president, a decree published in the latest issue of the official gazette Magyar Közlöny shows.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said late in December that governing Fidesz would nominate Novák for president.

President János Áder's mandate expires on May 10, 2022. He has served two, five-year terms, the most allowed under Hungary's Constitution.

Novák, a mother of three, has spearheaded the government's efforts to address the problem of depopulation through support for families raising children.

In the same issue of the Közlöny, President Áder ended Novák's ministerial mandate, in view of her resignation, in a resolution effective December 31.
