Lawmakers will vote on a proposal about the transparency of NGOs supported from abroad and the 2018 budget during four sittings next week which will mark the end of parliament’s spring session.
On Monday parliament will debate and vote about proposed amendments to this year’s amended budget and to next year’s budget.
The schedule for Tuesday includes votes on a proposal about the transparency of NGOs supported from abroad, a proposal on the regulation of new criminal procedures and lawyers’ activities, on Hungary’s continued participation in the international efforts against the Islamic State terrorist organisation, the foundations for next year’s budget, tax laws and a proposal that enables the establishment of pensioner cooperatives.
On Wednesday, lawmakers will get to decide, among others, about a proposal to prevent covert party financing and several international agreements. They are scheduled to debate a law on public servants and amendments necessary for the national pension insurance directorate to merge with the state treasury.
Thursday’s sitting is planned to take only one hour in the afternoon and its schedule includes a vote on the 2018 budget and the amendment of this year’s budget.
Parliament will then take a recess, which is expected to end in mid-September.
