The president of the national self-government of the Germans of Hungary was killed on a Monday after a serious illness.

Ottó Heinek was elected as the head of the German minority authority in 1999 and confirmed in 2003 and 2007. At the parliamentary elections in 2014, he acquired a mandate as leader of German self-government, but handed over his parliamentary seat to Imre Ritter before the inaugural meeting.

Ottó Heinek was born in Mohács in 1960. He graduated in 1983 from the Hungarian-German Faculty of Humanities at the Janus Pannonius University in Pécs and then became a member of the Neue Zeitung in German until 1990.

In the nineties he was head of the National Ethnicity and Minority Office and between 1995 and 1999 he was the vice president of the office.

After more than twenty years, the parliamentary representation of national minorities has been resolved, but those involved are not entirely satisfied and the registration is only slow. Although there may in principle be a substantial discount for their own representative, they must declare that they will vote on a list of parties. The German self-government was in vain at registration, the Swabians did not break out, and among the Slovaks a direct war broke out between the signatory parties and boycott advertisers. The biggest minority, the leaders of the Roma apparently tactics. We went to a Slovakian and a Swabian city.
