Government Crisis follows Reshuffle

The Free Democrats withdrew confidence in Prime Minister Peter Medgyessy after he fired the economy minister, István Csillag, even though the smaller coalition party opposed the dismissal.

Coalition talks will start tomorrow, threatening a collapse of the two year-old government. The Free Democrats won't nominate a successor, party Chairman Gábor Kuncze said.

In yesterday’s reshuffle, Medgyessy dismissed his economy, labor and sports ministers and created the post of development minister as part of efforts to bolster voter support for his Socialist-led cabinet.

Imre Szekeres will replace Sándor Burány as labor minister, while János Veres, one of Finance Minister Tibor Draskovic’s two deputies, was named development minister.
