Hungary’s parliament will convene on five days during the upcoming two-week session, and lawmakers on Tuesday are likely to vote in support of cancelling the mandatory annual chimney inspection for households despite President János Áder recently returning the related law to parliament.

Members of government will field questions from lawmakers on Monday afternoon, the first sitting of the session.

On Tuesday, MPs will vote on the cancellation of mandatory annual chimney inspection which Áder has returned for reconsideration, stating that making inspections on a voluntary basis could significantly increase the number of life-threatening cases.

Lawmakers will also vote on amendment proposals by the government to improve competitiveness and changes that will affect the handling of migration.

After the votes, a ruling Fidesz proposal to make election campaign costs more transparent will be debated.

On Thursday, debates are scheduled on ten proposals, including a general debate on a new tax law.

Lawmakers on Friday will mark November 3 as the day for the celebration of Hungarian science and they are scheduled to debate six proposals, including a general debate on expanding support for youth and amendments affecting the Hungarian Art Academy and the National Land Fund.

The last sitting of the upcoming two weeks will be held on Monday, when lawmakers will discuss in four hours a green opposition LMP initiative on compensating people who suffered losses as a result of mortgages taken out in foreign currencies.
