In a Facebook entry, Socialist lawmaker Ildikó Bangó Borbély (pictured on top) said Human Resources Minister Miklós Kásler was “unfit” for his post, arguing that he relied on assistance from Interior Minister Sándor Pintér and Innovation and Technology Minister László Palkovics to manage the health-care system.
Borbély Bangó again called on the government to reveal its plans for overhauling the country’s health-care system, which she insisted had been ordered from an international analyst firm by Pintér.
She said the fact that the analysis on the health-care sector’s overhaul had been ordered by the interior minister also demonstrated Kásler’s “incompetence”.
The lawmaker said the state of Hungary’s health-care system was “progressively getting worse each year”, insisting that some one million people lacked access to basic care due to a shortage of general practitioners.
Citing a recent study, she said Hungary had the highest number of preventable deaths due to shortcomings of the country’s health-care system in the European Union.
