Parliament to vote on constitutional amendment, ‘Stop Soros’ laws next Wednesday
Hungary’s parliament will vote on the government’s amendment proposal to the constitution and the “Stop Soros” package of laws next Wednesday, according to the national assembly’s website.
Prior to the final vote on Monday, deputies will discuss proposed changes to the draft laws, the website said.
Ruling Fidesz group leader Máté Kocsis said earlier that the constitutional amendments were a “reflection of the will of the electorate expressed in the April 8 general election and the 2016 referendum”. He said that the amendment proposal covers three areas: the issue of constitutional identity, issues related to the courts and issues concerning privacy protection.
The “Stop Soros” laws are designed to penalise anyone who “organises illegal migration” or encourages others to bypass the relevant laws.
