Hungary’s Parliament elected seven members to the National Election Committee on Monday.
The members nominated by President Janos Ader were elected in a single vote, with 251 votes for, 43 against and four abstentions.
The parliamentary party groups can also delegate non-permanent members to the committee. Their mandate, however, will expire once the elections have been called. During the election campaign, the parties fielding a national list will have the right to delegate members to the committee.
Lawmakers of the opposition Socialists and the electoral alliance E14-PM said before the vote that they would boycott it.
