Zeman describes Orban as “genuine leader” in message of congratulations

The Czech president, Miloš Zeman, says the recently reelected Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orban, is a genuine leader, a type lacking in contemporary politics. Mr. Zeman made the comment in a message of congratulations to Mr. Orban after his Fidesz party came first in elections at the weekend. Mr. Zeman wrote that the strength of support regularly won by the party showed that Hungarians also regarded Mr. Orban as a genuine leader.
