ABSTRACT
The article presents a summary of risks faced by Hungary. With regards to politics, the main opposition party Fidesz is broadening its lead on the ruling Socialists. The author said that the low popularity of the government prompted Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany to reshuffle his cabinet to increase support for reform. Meanwhile, the National Bank of Hungary (NBH) reduced its base interest rate after keeping rates on hold. The benchmark BUX equity index broke through multi-year resistance.
