Hungary was the only former Eastern Bloc nation that did not adopt an entirely new constitution after the fall of communism in 1989. All the other Eastern Bloc nations made new constitutions immediately after 1989 to reflect the democratic changes in their countries. Hungary still operated under the old communist constitution of 1949, even though it had been heavily amended in 1989 after the regime change. A new constitution was adopted in 2011 and came into force on 1 January 2012. It is heavily rooted in a conservative Christian worldview and outlines the traditional Christian values of Hungarian society. Hungary has been a Christian nation for over 1,100 years, something that the liberal left and far left-wing in Hungary still seek to destroy.
Editor's Note: If the left-wing thinks that operating under the old 1949 constitution was an option or creating a similar one, they'd better wake up and smell the roses. The vast majority of the Hungarian people are no longer willing to be dictated to by iron-fisted commissars. The left-wing Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) are the heirs/descendants of the Hungarian Socialist Workers' Party (MSZMP) which ruled Hungary ruthlessly for almost 40 years!
It is amazing how the conservative government of Hungary got attacked by the left-wing parties and their sympathizers in the mainstream media for doing what was necessary. The country needed a constitution that reflected the historical nature of its society. For most of her history, Hungary was a conservative Christian society. It is this fact that the Hungarian left despises the most.
