Budapest, September 9 (MTI) - Hungary s government must clearly communicate its decisions to the public and explain how people will benefit from them, newly appointed government spokesman Andras Giro-Szasz told MTI on Friday.

Giro-Szasz said he would enter office on Monday and quit his post of managing director at the Szazadveg think-tank within the legally stipulated deadline.

 

"We live in times when the international economic environment and its regional effects on society make it vital to modernise Hungary now, otherwise we may miss our chances for good," Giro-Szasz said.

 

He said he would be in charge of domestic communication about the government s activities and added that his work would be like a doctor s who explains to patients before an operation that "even though it may be painful or frightening for a short while, the situation will improve considerably after the necessary steps are taken."

 

Giro-Szasz has been invited by Prime Minister Viktor Orban to fill the post after former spokesperson Anna Nagy left for unpaid leave for family reasons in early summer and Zoltan Kovacs has stepped in temporarily.

 

Kovacs, state secretary in charge of government communications, will continue to meet other responsibilities, including international communication, the organisation of state celebrations and the operation of the government portal.

 

Talking to the press on the restructuring of the government s communication system, the premier s spokesman Peter Szijjarto said on Thursday that former police spokesperson Laszlo Garamvolgyi had been appointed as spokesman of civil security issues. Sandor Czomba, state secretary at the economy ministry for employment policy, would also take part in communicating issues on employment issues.
