President Katalin Novak resigns – LExpress

Hungarian President Katalin Novak announced her resignation on Saturday, February 10, after the indignation caused by her decision to pardon a convict involved in a child crime case.

“I am renouncing my post,” declared this close friend of Prime Minister Viktor Orban during a solemn speech, admitting to having made “a mistake.” In March 2022, she became the first woman to occupy this essentially ceremonial function.
