Hungary’s parliament will begin its autumn season with a two-day session on September 20 with a debate on pandemic-related measures on the agenda on Tuesday, according to a draft schedule posted on its website.
Monday’s session is scheduled to begin at 1pm with commemorations of four former MPs who passed away over the summer.
Similarly to the routine of previous years, parliament’s autumn session is expected to open with an address of the prime minister.
Tuesday’s session is set to begin at 9am with a final vote on lifting the immunity of two lawmakers for opposition Jobbik and one for ruling Fidesz.
The session will continue with a general debate on the government’s proposal to prolong the special measures related to the coronavirus pandemic until Jan. 1.
As we wrote before, Attila Mesterházy, the Socialist deputy head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee, turned to the director general of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (AH) to ask about the use of the Israeli-made Pegasus spyware in Hungary. Details HERE
