Parliament to discuss constitutional amendment on Wednesday
Hungary's parliament will start a six-day session on Monday, with a plenary debate on the government's 9th amendment to the constitution on its Wednesday agenda.
The agenda for the session, which will start at 1pm on Monday, will include bills relating to family farms, tax and climate law amendments, as well as changes to rules on state asset management, energy efficiency, and higher education. An amendment to the election law will also be discussed, probably on Monday.
The bill to amend the constitution was submitted on November 11. Justice Minister Judit Varga said that the legislation was designed to “strengthen protections of families and children”, adding that the amendment “seeks to ensure that all children are brought up according to Christian values appropriate to his or her gender of birth”.
