Hungary. Janos Ader says goodbye to the president
The President of Hungary is the representative in the first place. He is elected for a five-year term by the National Assembly with a majority of at least two-thirds of the votes. If Parliament fails to vote in the first two voting rounds, a simple majority must be obtained in the third round. The new head of state must be elected at least 30 days before the end of the office of the current head of state.
The current president, as of May 10, 2012, was Janos Ader – politician and co-founder of Fidesz. Adair graduated in law from Loranda Jótvosa University in Budapest and was an employee of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. In the years 1998-2002 he was Deputy Speaker of the Hungarian Parliament, and from 2002 to 2003 – Chairman of Fidesz. In 2009, he was elected to the European Parliament.
