Leading British weekly, The Economist, published in today’s issue an overview of the Hungarian government policy titled „Hungry for power”. The article says that „the government takes over Hungary’s independent institutions, one by one”, so “there is a growing alarm about the increasing centralisation power under the right-wing Fidesz government led by Viktor Orbán, Hungary’s pugnacious prime minister”. Hungary is without doubt under the international spotlight as starting from 1 January 2011 the country takes over the rotating presidency of the European Union. However, the article contains positive points as well, for example the sliding support of far-right party Jobbik, the 3% projected growth and the extensive attention given to Roma (Gypsy) minority issues.
