Hungarian Defense Minister, Csaba Hende, has announced that the Government of Hungary had decided to declared 11 new annual national holidays, commemorating a variety of historical events, and administered by a newly created National Event Management Office, itself a new department of the Prime Minister's Office.
These 11 new national holidays in Hungary range from the commemoration of the expropriation and expulsion of ethnic Germans after World War 2, to a new national holiday for Victims of Communism. Assumption Day, whose declaration as a non-working public holiday in Hungary, has been a recurring topic over the past decade (10-May-2011, 16-Aug-2001 and 03-Aug-2001) is also expected to be part of these 11 new annual national holidays in Hungary.
As explained by Defense Minister Hende and Arnold Igazság of the National Event Management Office, these will not be annual non-working public holidays in Hungary.
