"Antall was one of the real
twentieth-century statesmen of Europe. During the collapse of communism
Antall was deeply committed to a Christian, responsibly nationalist and
democratic direction, and, as a prepared politician, he became Hungary's
first freely elected prime minister. Antall wanted a Christian Hungary
since this would be its only future, his Christian
beliefs were rooted in his European identity."
Quote from Speaker of Parliament Laszlo Kover on the late Prime Minister Jozsef Antall. Antall was Hungary's first democratically elected prime minister after the fall of communism.
