BUDAPEST (AP) - The Hungarian Democratic Forum, the senior partner in Hungary's conservative coalition, nominated the Interior Minister, Peter Boross to succeed Jozsef Antall as prime minister. Antall died on Sunday, aged 61.
Under the constitution, the prime minister's death ends the mandate of the government, and it is up to the president of the republic to name a new head of government who requires parliamentary approval.
Boross, 65, who became acting prime minister immediately after Antall's death, as stipulated by the constitution, is known as an authoritarian hard-line politician.
'My priorities include continued stability, public peace, constitutional order and fulfilment of . . . the government's program,' Boross, a law graduate, said on state radio early Monday.
