BUDAPEST, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- The situation of the national healthcare system, and corruption were the two top concerns of Hungarian people, according to a poll published here on Sunday.

The question asked by Hungarian pollster Median was: "What do Hungarians think of the most serious problem to be solved in the country?"

According to the survey conducted in October on a representative 1,200-people sample of the Hungarian society, the list was clearly led by the status of the healthcare system as the most important problem to be solved, with 62 percent of the respondents considering it to be the top problem of the country.

"The second most important problem according to Hungarians was corruption," Median declared in a statement, adding that the problem of emigration and immigration came at third and fourth places respectively.

Young Hungarians leaving Hungary for Western Europe came at the third place, while migrants coming to live in Hungary came in at the fourth.

"Migrants are only top concern for about 9 percent of the population, the worry about emigration is well ahead of immigration," Media underlined.

The assessment of problems was only moderately influenced by political affiliation, and healthcare, for example, was a major problem in all social groups, regardless of party preferences, according to Median.
