The old Bolshevik worries about the return of the “Rovásírás”

Monday, March 8, 2010

László Kovács, the doyen of the Socialist party said in a town hall meeting that the stake of the national election was whether Hungary returns to the past or continues its recent economic growth.

In addition, he threatened his audience with the return of the “Rovásírás” (“Rovásírás” is an ancient form of Hungarian alphabet using cuneiform rather than Latin scripts). Jobbik wants to introduce the ancient form of Hungarian alphabet, as a mandatory subject in the curriculum of elementary schools.

László Kovács has served as an EU tax commissioner for five years and he has returned home, recently. His contribution to the European parliament has been summed up by The Economist with one brief sentence: “He has left no trace of his passage through Brussels".
