Jobbik submits bill on banning politicians from top sport positions

Opposition Jobbik submitted on Saturday a bill that bans politicians from filling leadership posts at sport organisations, a party lawmaker said.

György Szilágyi told a press conference that under their motion, parliamentary deputies, government commissioners, local government officials and MEPs would be prohibited from serving in top positions of a sport federation or a sport club.

He said that the ruling Fidesz party had been seeking “to exert control” over all sport branches in Hungary, thereby causing a lot of damage to the industry as a whole.

“In a democratic society leadership in sports is strictly separated from leadership in politics, and this is how the system should also work in Hungary in the interest of sports as a profession,” Szilágyi said.

He said that the FINA World Aquatics Championships Hungary hosted last month had been a success, but it was important to scrutinise how the funds allocated for the event had exactly been spent.

    Or that should be the new name for the Jobbik party, the Clown Inc. party. Seems every time their in the news, they have to create a new law on politicians, as if they were gods themselves. The eyes of the leader seem to make me think he’s possessed by the anti-christ himself, what a joke!!! There are a lot of Mad Clowns running around these days, maybe they should start arresting some of them, before they cause any harm.
