The prices of some products, including flour and milk, will be limited in Hungary from February 1, Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced on Wednesday in a Facebook recording after the government meeting.
Wheat flour, milk a cow with 2.8% fat, sugar, sunflower oil, pork leg and chicken breast from February 1, they will not be able to cost more than October 15. “This must be the case in every store,” Orban stated.
From mid-November, a fuel price limit is in force in Hungary, which is expected to last until mid-February. The price of 95-octane petrol and regular heating oil must not exceed 480 forints (PLN 6.05) per liter. The limit does not apply to premium class fuels.
Orban recalled in Wednesday’s recording that the government also cut interest rates on loans – they were frozen at the October level, and residents are paying lower utility bills thanks to state funding.
On April 3, parliamentary elections will be held in Hungary, in which the ruling Fidesz will for the first time face a united opposition that will put forward only one candidate in each constituency against the candidate of Fidesz or its coalition partner, the Christian Democratic People’s Party (KDNP).
