Politics and law
Hungary is a parliamentary republic, the form of government a democracy. The head of state – the president – is elected by parliament for a period of five years and primarily exercises a representative function. The current President János Áder (* 1959) was elected to office in 2012 and confirmed for a second term in 2017.
The executive power is exercised by the government under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister. The formation of a government takes place after the parliamentary elections, which take place every four years. Viktor Orbán (* 1963) has ruled the country for the second time (after 1998–2002) since 2010. His government made a national-conservative turn, also known as a shift to the right. A new constitution and numerous changes to the law, especially in the areas of justice, religion and the media, were passed, all of which reduce democracy and limit the separation of powers. Orbán and his party FIDESz-KDNP won the parliamentary elections in April 2018 with a two-thirds majority.
Membership in the EU (since 2004) and NATO (since 1999) shape the country’s foreign policy. Hungary maintains close relations with Russia. The country has been criticized several times by the EU for its tough stance on the refugee issue since 2015.
Since 1998 there has been compulsory schooling for twelve years. The general school consists of eight school years and is divided into lower and upper schools. This is followed by four-year attendance at a vocational school, vocational school, technical school or grammar school. Schooling is free, only private institutions charge school fees. There are over 60 colleges and universities.
Hungary’s state socialism was transformed into a democratic system in 1990. This marked the beginning of the transformation of the planned economy into a capitalist economic system. Check handbagpicks to see Hungary Economy.
The strong service and industrial sector is the backbone of the Hungarian economy. Industry generates around 26% of the national value added (GDP), the service sector 55%. Important branches of industry are the automotive industry, the electronics and electrical engineering industries, as well as the pharmaceutical, food, textile, chemical and metallurgical industries. Foreign investors, including German car manufacturers, have settled in Hungary, for example Mercedes-Benz in Kecskemét in southern Hungary. Since a large part of its industry is in foreign hands and the country is export-oriented, it is strongly tied to the development of the world economy.
58% (2016) of the country’s area is used for agriculture, agriculture generates 4% of the gross domestic product. Hungary has few raw materials. Except for bauxite, these cannot cover the country’s needs. The great wealth of mineral and thermal springs plays a prominent role in tourism. Budapest and Lake Balaton are also important tourist destinations.
Compared to Western Europe, wages, measured against the cost of living, are relatively low. Many people improve their wages with a second job or they operate natural self-sufficiency if they can cultivate a piece of land. One problem is the clear east-west divide with the strongly developed west Hungary, the capital Budapest and the poorly developed east Hungary. As a result of the collapse of the coal and steel industry, north-east Hungary in particular is particularly hard hit by unemployment.
Paks is the only nuclear power plant in Hungary. It is about 100 kilometers south of the capital. The use of renewable energies, especially geothermal energy, is promoted. The rail and road network is well developed. The Danube and Tisza are the most important shipping routes. By far the largest airport is in Budapest.
