Hungary Government - TravelPuppy.com
Legislative power is held by the 386-seat national assembly, the Orszaggyhles, which is elected for four years. 176 members come from single seat constituencies, 152 by proportional representation in multi-seat constituencies, and 58 members by proportional representation on a national basis.

The Council of Ministers, the highest executive organ, is elected by the assembly on the advice of the president, who is also elected by the national assembly for a four-year term, and may serve 2 terms.

In April 1995, a 53-member National Autonomous Authority of the Romany Minority was ratified, with the power to administer funds disbursed by the central Government.
