File picture shows Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban at a news conference ahead of a European Union leaders summit in Brussels March 14, 2013. Banks should modify foreign currency loan contracts in favour of Hungarian borrowers by November, bearing most of the losses from exchange rate swings on the loans, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on September 6, 2013. Orban and his Fidesz party, gearing up for elections in 2014, want to reduce the burden on Hungarians who took mortgages in Swiss francs - and to a lesser extent euros - and have seen repayments and the amount owed rocket due to the franc's gains since 2008.
