The rule of law was another key pillar of President Boskai’s vision. He emphasized the importance of a fair and just legal system that protects the rights of all citizens. The President vowed to strengthen the judiciary, enhance legal education, and promote transparency and accountability in governance. By improving the rule of law, President Boskai aims to create an enabling environment for investment, foster social cohesion, and ensure justice for all.
