Earlier the week, House Speaker László Kövér told New People's Journal that the abolition of mandatory conscription was a catastrophic error, but to restore it we need a pan-European decision.
He also said that Hungary and Europe would be much stronger if compulsory enrollment into the military service restored, and it is a real possibility that it will take place in the not too distant future.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán denied that the government was contemplating of the re-introduction of compulsory military service in Hungary.
The issue of compulsory military service is not on the agenda and there are no plans to open a debate about it anytime soon he said.
