Budapest (MTI) – President János Áder will take the oath of office for his second presidential term at the end of parliament’s upcoming five-day session.
Parliament’s session will begin on Tuesday afternoon with speeches prior to the agenda.
This will be followed by the swearing in of János Süli as minister without portfolio in charge of overseeing and managing the upgrade of the Paks nuclear power plant. Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced early last month that he would appoint a minister without portfolio to oversee the project.
The first day is scheduled to conclude with a general debate of a government bill aimed at thwarting covert party financing.
Lawmakers will begin Wednesday by passing resolutions. The house is then expected to approve a number of international treaties and could also amend the law on the chamber of agriculture. Following the votes, lawmakers are scheduled to debate bills on the advertisement tax and the integration of credit cooperatives.
On Thursday, parliament will discuss government motions concerning health care and education as well as the Hungarian Armed Forces’ continuing role in the international fight against the Islamic State terrorist group.
Parliament’s session concludes next Monday with President Áder taking his second oath of office. Áder was re-elected president by parliament on March 13.
