BUDAPEST, March 29 (Reuters) – Hungarian Prime Minister
Viktor Orban sees no reason to initiate any changes in his
government, his spokesman Peter Szijjarto told public television
m1 on Tuesday.

Szijjarto was asked about a report saying four ministers,
including Economy Minister Gyorgy Matolcsy and Development
Minister Tamas Fellegi, would leave the government after
Hungary’s six-month term as European Union president ends in

“The prime minister has no intention to reshuffle the
government, either in terms of its structure or in terms of
ministers,” Szijjarto said.

“The government will continue to work in its current shape
and personal makeup, there is no reason whatsoever to change
this,” he said.

Earlier the daily Nepszava reported, without naming its
source, that Orban could replace four ministers in the summer,
Fellegi, Matolcsy, as well as Foreign Minister Janos Martonyi
and National Resources Minister Miklos Rethelyi.

The paper said the reshuffle could result in the creation of
a separate finance portfolio independent of the Economy Ministry
and led by former Finance Minister Mihaly Varga, who works as
state secretary to the prime minister.

Separately, Antal Rogan, a lawmaker of the ruling Fidesz
party, said there were no plans for an early election in 2012
after local media interpreted one of his recent remarks that
this may be an option under consideration.

The next scheduled election is in 2014.

“There will not be elections (before 2014), for a very
simple reason,” Rogan told private broadcaster TV2.

“Taking care of the set of problems we inherited from
previous governments will unfortunately take not two years, we
will be lucky if four years will be enough,” he said.

Rogan added that a new electoral law based on the new
constitution would take effect in 2012, cutting the number of
lawmakers in parliament to 200 from 386, in line with the
government’s earlier plans.
