Miklós Hanó (6 February 1957 – 3 September 2023): A Hungarian Politician Dedicated to Public Service

Miklós Hanó, a prominent Hungarian politician, was known for his active involvement in the country’s political landscape. Born on 6 February 1957 in Békéscsaba, Hungary, Hanó pursued his education at the Vocational Secondary School of Food Industry in Szeged. He later took his state examination at the College of Food Industry in 1978. Hanó gained valuable professional experience working as a manager at Körös-Food Ltd and as the Chief Engineer of Production at the Húsker Company in Békéscsaba.

His political journey commenced when he joined the Independent Smallholders, Agrarian Workers and Civic Party (FKGP) in 1993. He actively contributed to the party, serving as the chairman of the Békéscsaba branch from 1993 to 2001 and also as a representative in the Békéscsaba Assembly. Hanó’s dedication led him to become a member of the Hungarian Smallholders and Civic Party (MKPP), which he chaired since 2001, after leaving FKGP.

Over the years, Hanó held significant positions, including Deputy Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture. He was also a dedicated member of various organizations like the Self-defense Movement of Hungarian Farmers and Consumers (MAGFÖM). Hanó’s commitment to public service extended to local governance, where he served as a deputy mayor of Békéscsaba from 2006 until his passing.

In 2010, Hanó made a notable return to the National Assembly as an MP from Békés County Regional List, representing the Fidesz party. He remained an active member, contributing his expertise to the Committee on Agriculture. Additionally, Hanó stood for the mayoral seat of Békéscsaba during the 2014 local elections, reflecting his dedication to both national and local governance.

Beyond his political endeavors, Miklós Hanó was a family man, cherishing his role as a husband and father to two children. Tragically, on 3 September 2023, Hungary lost a dedicated public servant when Hanó passed away at the age of 66. His contributions to Hungarian politics and society will always be remembered and appreciated.
