The legitimacy of the new national assembly and the incoming government is beyond dispute, President Janos Ader said opening the inaugural session of parliament on Tuesday, MTI reports.

The president said the decision made by voters in the election must be respected by everyone, arguing that this was the fundamental rule of democracy, the Hungarian news agency writes. 

Ader proposed that parliament should re-elect Viktor Orban, leader of the Fidesz party, as prime minister.

On the topic of the European Union, the president said certain EU leaders “seem to have lost their way”.
