András Simor, the governor of the National Bank of Hungary, on Tuesday came under renewed attack from the deputy chief of Fidesz-Hungarian Civic Union, the party which swept into power after elections at the weekend.
In remarks confirmed by the party, Zoltán Pokorni said in a television interview that the central bank chief should resign immediately. "He should have resigned when it turned out he had offshore companies registered in Cyprus," Pokorni said.
