Local assemblies allowed to reconvene from June 15

Municipal assemblies will be allowed to reconvene and meet as they had prior to the introduction of the special legal order in connection with the coronavirus pandemic from June 15, the prime minister's chief of staff said on Saturday.

Under a decision issued by the government’s working group in charge of the special legal order, the emergency powers of mayors granting them the authority to perform the functions of local assemblies will expire on June 15, Gergely Gulyas told MTI.

The prime minister on Saturday will sign an amendment to the legislation governing the powers of local assemblies, which will be published in the official gazette Magyar Kozlony over the weekend, he added.

“With the return of normality, we consider it important to ensure that local councils are allowed to resume their normal operations,” Gulyas said.
