Prime Minister Viktor Orban has congratulated Markus Soeder on his election as chairman of the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU), in a letter, Orban’s press chief said.
Orban called the traditionally close partnership between his ruling Fidesz and Soeder’s governing CSU parties an important pillar of Hungarian-Bavarian and Hungarian-German ties, Bertalan Havasi told MTI.
“Our commitment towards Christian values provides a solid foundation for finding a common solution to issues affecting the future of the European Union,”
The prime minister said he and the Hungarian government would support this endeavour and wished Soeder much success in serving his post. Söder was elected to the post at a special party congress with 87.4 percent of the votes in Munich on Saturday.
