German weekly Der Spiegel published a rather pessimistic review about Hungary and the first 2 years of Orbán Viktor's government. Der Spiegel underlines that "halfway through the term, the state of the administration is grim, the nation is deeply divided and on the brink of financial ruin". The article also mentions the events that led to the election of a new president after the former officeholder, Mr. Pál Schmitt resigned in April. With details about Hungary's controversial behaviour towards the European Union, Der Spiegel underlines how isolated the country became within the EU during the past two years.
