Zsolt Molnár, the head of parliament’s national security committee, said on Thursday that he would send a letter to US financier George Soros, asking him to provide information about the “Soros Plan”.
The opposition Socialist lawmaker told reporters that he would make Soros’s answer available to the public. As a consequence, the meeting lacked a quorum.
Earlier today lawmakers of allied ruling Fidesz and Christian Democrats walked out of a meeting of the committee in protest against the presence of Bernadett Szél, co-leader of green opposition LMP and a member of the committee.
They argued that Szél and her party served the interests of Soros.
As a consequence, the meeting lacked a quorum.
Szilárd Németh, the deputy head of the committee for Fidesz, said Molnár had not consulted with him about his plan to write a letter to Soros. With this move, he said, the head of the committee “would transgress his powers”.
Ádám Mirkoczki of radical nationalist Jobbik proposed to invite Interior Minister Sándor Pintér to the next meeting of the committee.
Moláar said he backed Mirkoczki’s initiative, and convened the meeting for February 8.
