The government’s spokesman Andras Giro-Szasz told public television, he did not want to get into a “war of numbers”, but aerial photographs made it clear that there was a “very big difference” in the numbers of people supporting the government and those who criticised it. This was on January 23, on MTV’s Ma reggel show. According to the ministry of the interior, 400,000 people demonstrated in support of the government, “There has not been, in living memory, such a huge crowd rallying to the government’s side in Hungary,” the ministry said in a statement.
