BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungarian President Janos Ader has asked Prime Minister Viktor Orban to form a new government after Orban's ruling Fidesz party won two-thirds of seats in a parliamentary election last month, the state news agency MTI reported on Monday.

Parliament will hold its inaugural session on Tuesday and Orban is expected to announce his new government by the end of May.
