Orban says main task of new Hungarian govt ‘to preserve Christian culture’

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Monday the main task of his new government will be to preserve security and Christian culture. The PM made the statement after he was asked by the president to form a new government. Orban, 54, was re-elected for a third straight term in an election last month. The Fidesz party holds 133 of 199 seats in the new parliament that will enable it to pass laws. Parliament will hold its first session on Tuesday when Orban will be officially elected prime minister again. In a radio interview, late last week, Orban said his government was building a “Christian democracy.”
