Jobbik re-submits constitutional amendment
Opposition Jobbik party on Friday re-submitted an amendment proposal to Hungary’s constitution, the party’s deputy leader told a press conference.
János Volner highlighted the importance of border protection, and argued for the necessity of re-introducing a border guard, a proposal which the party has advocated since 2010. He added that another proposal, aimed at banning residency bonds in Hungary, has been added to the amendment.
Volner said his party was ready to support ruling Fidesz’s “anti-quota” constitutional amendment proposal.
Concerning the government’s residency bond programme, Volner said that people close to the government had realised “huge profits” on the bonds, while the programme had “compromised Hungary’s security through allowing migrants in the country several times as many as the number proposed by Brussels”.
Jobbik will say no to the government’s “accommodating migrants for money”.
Fidesz parliament group urges parliament legislation on ‘Stop Soros’ bill
The leader of the ruling Fidesz party’s group in Hungary’s new parliament urged the government to declare an intention to carry on legislating in connection with the “Stop Soros” bill, on Friday.
The government submitted in February to parliament a package of bills referred to as Stop Soros before the parliamentary elections on April 8. The “Stop Soros” bill seeks to sanction NGOs supporting migration.
Máté Kocsis, the group leader, told MTI that he called for the legislation considering the issue’s border protection and illegal migration aspects.
