The Hungarian government wants to extend the state of emergency due to the Russian-Ukrainian war. This would allow Fidesz to rule Hungary by decree for another 180 days.
The government is once again proposing to parliament to extend the state of emergency over the Russian-Ukrainian war. This requires a two-thirds majority of MPs.
The law was last extended on 1 November, index.hu reports.
“The purpose of the proposal is that Parliament, on the basis of Article 51(3) of the Fundamental Law, once again authorises the Government to extend the state of emergency for a further 180 days. The armed conflict and humanitarian disaster in Ukraine and their consequences for Hungary, especially in the areas of asylum, economy and energy, have not changed in the recent period, and, therefore the maintenance of the special legal order is justified,” the government’s official website reads.
On 1 November, a constitutional amendment came into force, replacing the previous six special legal orders with three. These are martial law, state of emergency and state of emergency.
Viktor Orbán had said earlier that this would allow the government to react immediately. On the contrary, the opposition believes that this further reduces the importance of the parliament, 444.hu reports.
Gergely Gulyás said in 2020 that “the political left accuses us in vain that the special legal order would last forever, it will end earlier than in most European countries”.

Isn’t power just … incredibly addictive ???
The “Need” to cover that HUMONGOUS backside, exercise POWER, that to unravel the cataclysmic mess, as a country we are in at this point in time, cover it up, dig the BLACK Hole deeper, “spew” out all the PROPAGANDA – that when the walls sooner than later TUMBLE Down – blame – as is the DNA of Orban & Fidesz – again will be sifted to “others.”
It’s ALL a Smoke Scene – putting off the inevitable, that we, having been taken to this Shattered & Splintered -demoralized place, a country, nearing Financial collapse by Orban & his “Mob” – just “playing off” millions of Hungarians citizens.
Not for a minute should it be thought that the European Union will in any form – ” bail out” the Orban led Government of Hungary.
We brace ourselves for HARDER times.
This government would take any opportunity to extend their power … In what way the state of emergency has made our lives easier? Autocracy at its finest
Couldn’t agree more @Norbert, @Smoke Screen and @Renault.
Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
How our hands are tied? Common citizens are unable to do anything? Why international tribunes not revisiting human rights abuse by this oligarchic power-o-maniacs. Just sit and wait for the doomsday?
Things must be incredibly bad here, especially seeing that we are the only European country where a State of Emergency is ongoing, practically non-stop.
Other European countries’ parliament can deal with the same situations that we might be facing, but here, only Orbán (and maybe a couple of of his closest allies) can deal with it,
What emergency? Power is their drug
