Hungary’s parliament to start autumn session today
Budapest (MTI) – Hungary’s parliament will start its autumn session on Monday with an address by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, to be followed by reactions by all parliamentary parties.
Lawmakers will then elect a new external member into the central bank’s rate-setting committee. The candidate, Kolos Kardkovács, may follow Andrea Bártfai-Máger, who resigned from the body to become government commissioner for postal affairs and national financial services.
Parliament will vote on suspending the immunity of Fidesz lawmaker Roland Mengyi on suspicion of corruption involving public funds.
On Tuesday, lawmakers will hear a report by the ombudsman and his deputy on their work done last year, and discuss a bill on the civil procedures code.
