This data is not maintenable. Updates should possibly come from the CIA world factbook, after it's released. I just updated some data but I don't have the resources to update everything (parties, dates, etc). Sorry. --grin 14:31 23 May 2003 (UTC)

maintainance[edit]

I have marked clearly outdated information by "strikeout".

Thanks, but this was not very helpful. I can strike out outdated informations as well. Please if you find outdated informations update them. Thanks! --grin 00:03, 3 Sep 2003 (UTC)

I just finished wikifying the massive list of international organizations, using AcronymFinder. Most of the links point to de-acronymized titles, but some do not. This is because AcronymFinder gave multiple plausible decipherments. Please have a care with these, to avoid linking to organizations that Hungary isn't actually a member of. --Smack 04:20, 9 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Encyclopedia-like wording[edit]

"New Year's Day (Resting day, because people get drunk during the New Year's Eve celebrations)" - are you guys sure it is an appropriate wording for an encyclopedia?

Cleanup[edit]

This article needs a cleanup, imho. Wouter Lievens 22:45, 29 Mar 2005 (UTC)

I agree. It needs to be broken up by headings, for one thing. Maybe put all information on the individual branches of government into their own subsections? And delete some information that isn't really about politics, like the flag description. SingingDragon 05:23, 24 May 2005 (UTC)

Some corrections[edit]

I have corrected some basic facts about our form of government, national holidays and national history. The "Judicial branch" part is fundamentally wrong. The Constitutional Court is not considered part of it as it makes no judgements on indidvidual cases, the system of Courts is not mentioned. I believe that this article needs plenty of corrections, both factually and in style. --81.182.55.37 19:08, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

And many more. We don't have election pages, page for the constitution, c.court etc. Anyone having time has to do something :) --Sicboy 22:08, 27 September 2005 (UTC)

Important notice[edit]

The government section of the "Outline of Hungary" needs to be checked, corrected, and completed -- especially the subsections for the government branches.

When the country outlines were created, temporary data (that matched most of the countries but not all) was used to speed up the process. Those countries for which the temporary data does not match must be replaced with the correct information.

Please check that this country's outline is not in error.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact The Transhumanist .

Thank you.

Protests Fail to Block Legislation in Hungary by Reuters via NYT published December 23, 2011; excerpt ...

Thousands of Hungarians protested outside Parliament on Friday, hours after opposition lawmakers chained themselves to barriers in an unsuccessful effort to block legislation that they said represented a blow to democracy. Former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány, a Socialist, was among the lawmakers protesting, and he was briefly detained along with several other opposition lawmakers.

Fidesz[edit]

I'm aware that there's some unhappiness with the 2011 constitutional changes, but the description of the changes made by Fidesz is deeply biased and needs to be made more neutral. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.27.188.77 (talk) 10:14, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Hungary turns away from democracy "Hungary has seen a stunning consolidation of power under President Orban. A new Constitution that took effect Jan. 1 appears to confirm a move toward more authoritarian rule." by Robert Marquand from Paris, Staff writer Csmonitor.com January 10, 2012 22:40, 16 January 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.87.29.188 (talk)
