Following a controversy that trailed her decision to pardon a man convicted of covering up a child sexual abuse case in a children’s home, Hungarian President, Katalin Novak has resigned.

According to reports, she resigned on Saturday, February 10, 2023.

It could be recalled that the pardon decision was made last year but only caught the public’s attention over the past days after a report by the local news site 444.hu, which was met with outrage, leading Hungary’s opposition to call for Katalin Novak to step down.

,,,,,,,While protests calling for her to step down had been growing in Hungary, Ms Novak apologised and said she made “a mistake” in granting the pardon. “I made a mistake,” Novak said in a televised address aired on Saturday, when she announced her resignation and issued an apology to any victims who felt she had not stood with them.

______Novak who became president in 2022, also branded herself as a family-focused Christian conservative politician.


_____Judit Varga, the former minister of justice who approved the pardon, has also resigned from her new role leading the European elections campaign for Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s ruling Fidesz party.
