ESTONIA OPENS HUNGARIAN REPRESENTATION. Estonia on 4
August opened its first-ever diplomatic representation
in Hungary. Charge d'Affaires Lembit Luht presented his
credentials to the Hungarian Foreign Ministry and will
start work on establishing the new embassy in Budapest.
Estonia's ambassador to Hungary, Mart Laanemae,
currently resides in Vienna. Estonia is aiming to open
representations in nearly all NATO countries, having
opened embassies in most EU countries (except
Luxembourg) by 1997. Cuts in the 1999 budget have
postponed plans to open an embassy in Ottawa. Hungary,
meanwhile, has announced that its embassy in Tallinn
will be opened by October. MH

MAJORITY OF SLOVAKS SUPPORT GOVERNMENT RESHUFFLE. More
than half of Slovaks (57.4 percent) believe that the
restructuring of Premier Mikulas Dzurinda's cabinet is
necessary, according to a poll conducted by Polis
Slovakia. Jan Baranek, Polis Slovakia's director-
general, told CTK on 4 August that 28.7 percent of
respondents see no reason why the cabinet should be
reshuffled, while 13.9 percent expressed no view on
the subject. The Hungarian Coalition Party is calling
for a government reshuffle and is supported by other
members of the ruling coalition in that bid (see
"RFE/RL Newsline," 4 August 1999). MS

HUNGARIAN PREMIER CRITICIZES ROMANIA OVER UNIVERSITY
PROJECT. Viktor Orban on 4 August told Hungarian Radio
that the Romanian leadership "lacks the political
will" to set up a Hungarian-language state university.
As long as such will is absent, recent legislation
providing for such a university "does not help much,"
he said. Orban said that during his visit to Romania
in late July, he discussed with the leaders of the
Hungarian Democratic Federation of Romania (UDMR) how
to overcome these obstacles "by other means." UDMR
honorary chairman Bishop Laszlo Tokes's statement that
the Hungarian Churches in Transylvania are "ready to
set up a Christian university" was "brilliant," Orban
said, adding that this could be an alternative. The
Hungarian premier noted that he has "promised" ethnic
Hungarians in Transylvania that by 2002 they will have
Hungarian-language education from the nursery to
university. He added that he will keep that promise.

MILOSEVIC FAILS TO EXPAND GOVERNMENT'S BASE. Serbian
Prime Minister Mirko Marjanovic failed on 4 August to
convince leaders of Draskovic's party and of the League
of Vojvodina Hungarians to join his government, RFE/RL's
South Slavic Service reported. In Podgorica,
Montenegro's governing Democratic Socialist Party said
in a statement that it will not take part in similar
talks that Yugoslav Prime Minister Momir Bulatovic has
slated for 5 August. Bulatovic told "Vesti" that the
opposition should outline its program if it thinks it
can run the country better than his government has. PM

SLOVAK POLITICIAN CALLS FOR COALITION SOLIDARITY.
Justice Minister Jan Carnogursky on 5 August told CTK
that Slovakia's national interests must come before
party interests and that the time "is not ripe" for
changing the premier. Carnogursky, who heads the
Christian Democratic Party (KDH), is considered a rival
of Prime Minister Mikulas Dzurinda for the leadership of
the Slovak Democratic Coalition (SDK). The coalition was
set up last year by five parties, including the KDH.
Carnogursky said Slovakia must "present itself as a
stable, democratic, and pro-European country" to succeed
in its EU accession bid. He added the KDH will take a
"neutral stand" on the demand of the Hungarian
Democratic Coalition to reshuffle the cabinet because
"changing a few ministers would be seen abroad as a
normal step" and would not damage the country's image.

HUNGARY'S SMALLHOLDERS REJECT FIDESZ CANDIDATE FOR
PRESIDENCY. During unofficial talks with the junior
coalition Independent Smallholders' Party, the major
coalition party, FIDESZ, has proposed Ferenc Madl,
former minister of culture in Jozsef Antall's
government, as the parties' joint candidate for
president. "Nepszava" reported on 6 August that the
Smallholders rejected the proposal and said they
continue to consider party chairman Jozsef Torgyan as
their candidate. Under a coalition agreement, the
Smallholders are to nominate a joint candidate for
president. In other news, FIDESZ has offered one seat on
its National Board and another on its Steering Board to
the Christian Democratic Federation, which was formed by
former members of the so-called "moderate wing" of the
Christian Democratic Party. MSZ

HUNGARIAN LEADER IN ROMANIA URGES CHURCH PROPERTY
RESTITUTION. Bela Marko, chairman of the Hungarian
Democratic Federation of Romania (UDMR), sent a letter
to President Emil Constantinescu, Prime Minister Radu
Vasile, and Justice Minister Valeriu Stoica on 5 August
urging the restitution of Church property confiscated by
the Communists. Marko says the UDMR cannot comprehend
why the restitution of such property is not included in
a bill on the restitution of real estate currently being
debated by the parliament, Mediafax reported. MS
