Budapest, April 17 (MTI) – The opposition Socialists will support calls by the green opposition LMP party to convene an extraordinary parliamentary session over farmland issues.
“The scandals regularly surrounding state land leases, the fact that the land law and related laws are inadequate and impossible to enforce” justify calling such a session as soon as possible, the party told MTI today.
Parliament should modify the Land Act because it fails to meet the needs of agricultural players and leaseholders, it added.
LMP on Tuesday proposed that a two-day extraordinary session of parliament should be held to debate the protection of Hungarian farmland on April 24-25. The opposition E-PM and the radical nationalist Jobbik party have both supported the initiative.
