The opposition LMP party is proposing a payrise for staff in child-care institutions as well as increased per capita funding for those facilities, deputy group leader Máté Kanász-Nagy told a press conference on Monday.
“Reinforcing the welfare and child-care systems will do more towards the protection of children than propaganda,” he said.
LMP advocates Hungary’s earlier child protection law adopted in 1997, because “that serves to protect children rather than the government’s propaganda legislation,” said Kanász-Nagy.
He also called for reinforcing signal mechanisms in child protection, adding that “it applies to not only institutions but to all of us”.
The party will submit to parliament a draft decree on their proposals, the deputy group leader said.
