He does not resign. The president remains in his office, moreover he wants to prove that he is somebody, even if 70 years old, and wants to obtain a PhD.
There were a lot of people who already looked at Pál Schmitt as a funny clown. But those things he mentioned in his interview, for example that he quoted Georgiev the most, prove that the president does not understand what the problem is. He does not see why his thesis is problematic, nor does he understand the report that the fact-finding committee published on his thesis. He simply is unable to make sense of it all. The Borat, the dumb Kazakh journalist impersonated by Sacha Baron Cohen is funny because he just does not understand the West. But that was a joke. Our president has managed to perform the same act in all seriousness – congratulations!
