Vote on NGO bill expected in current parliament session
Budapest, May 23 (MTI) – The final vote on the ruling Fidesz party’s bill on the transparency of NGOs financed from abroad is expected to take place in the current Spring session of parliament, the head of Fidesz’s parliamentary group said on Tuesday.
Lajos Kósa said it is expected that both the partial results of the national consultation and the Venice Commission’s preliminary opinion concerning the matter would be ready by early June.
“The question is whether there might be a proposal for amendment that can be incorporated into the bill,” he added at a news conference.
On the topic of the Central European University, he said the government awaited a letter in which the United States officially clarified whether or not it has an interest in the case, and if so, what that may be.
