Kósa to step down as Fidesz group leader

Fidesz group leader Lajos Kósa will continue his career as minister without portfolio in charge of the government’s Modern Cities Programme, probably from October 1, Kósa told MTI. Kósa confirmed press reports earlier in the day about his move, saying speculation that Fidesz MP Gergely Gulyás might replace him as group leader of the ruling party were “not without foundation”. He said he had accepted Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s request that he take up the ministerial post. The new group leader will be elected at a party fraction meeting next week, he added. Kósa also said Fidesz MP Szilárd Németh may replace him as head of parliament’s defence and law enforcement committee.

  • Having a “career as minister without portfolio” has never been a successful path to power – Kosa is being dumped, being somebody who actually have his own ideas…

      Kosa somebody who has his own ideas sounds nearly positive. I may have missed something, but I only know him for spreading lies like his recent “gives the green light for the European Commission to implement the Soros plan” as reaction to the decision of the European court.

      Who will be the “idiot on camera” whenever our Glorious Leader needs a lap dog to bring some terrible news?
