Parbeszed submits proposal to strip resigning presidents from allowances

The opposition Parbeszed - Greens party is submitting a proposal to parliament and starting a petition to strip former presidents from allowances if they haven't finished their term, the party's spokesman said on Tuesday.

Presidents resigning due to ill health would be exempt from the legislation, Richard Barabas said.

Barabas said “a failed president” should not receive the same respect as a “president taking their mandate decently to term”. “Katalin Novak shouldn’t have luxury circumstances . and a gross five million forint (EUR 12,9000) allowance guaranteed by taxpayers,” he said.
