HUNGARIAN PRIME MINISTER ANNOUNCES CABINET RESHUFFLE. Viktor
Orban on 2 December told "Vilaggazdasag" that he intends to
reshuffle the cabinet before the end of the year. He said
that both structural and personnel changes will be made,
stressing at the same time that the move is linked neither to
the controversy over next year's budget nor to the nomination
of the head of the state next year, Orban explained. Under
the existing coalition agreement, the Smallholders' Party
must be consulted on budget issues and that party has the
right to nominate the ruling coalition's presidential
candidate, who must then be approved by FIDESZ. MSZ/MS
