Jobbik to submit bill on transparency of foreign support for politicians
Budapest, April 25 (MTI) – The opposition Jobbik party will submit a bill next week to oblige all lawmakers and state officials to declare what foreign support they have received since 1989, party leader Gábor Vona told a press conference on Tuesday.
Jobbik will also initiate a five-party consultation on the issue, he added.
Now that foreign financial support for civil organisations has become a major topic of political discourse, there is a just demand for the political sphere to apply the same standards to itself. Should ruling Fidesz fail to do so, it will admit that the NGO legislation is “no more than Orbán’s con game”, Vona said.
