Parliament paves the way for government to extend state of emergency

Parliament on Monday approved an amendment that authorises the government to extend by 180 days the state of emergency declared last May in connection with the war in Ukraine.

The motion passed with 131 votes for, 52 against and one abstention.

The law is aimed at managing the fallout of the war and the humanitarian disaster in Hungary.

The government first declared a state of emergency in connection with the war in Ukraine in May 2022, and MPs have voted to extend it several times.
