LMP asks president not to sign construction act

Opposition LMP has asked President Katalin Novak not to sign the law on construction approved on Tuesday by the ruling parties in parliament, the party's national board leader said.

Ors Tetlak told an online press conference today that LMP is also initiating a constitutional review of the law.

Tetlak said LMP had previously initiated a referendum against the law on priority investments which the National Election Committee rejected but a recent decision by the Kuria, Hungary’s supreme court, approved.

However, the ruling parties have amended sections of the law affected by the referendum and transferred them to the law on construction, he said. He added that the ruling parties had “used an embarrassing and obvious trick” with this move.
