Hungary holds parliamentary session to discuss NGOs

Hungary's Parliament will hold a four-day session over the legislation on the transparency of foreign-funded NGOs

Hungary's Parliament will hold a four-day session over the legislation on the transparency of foreign-funded NGOs.

The session starts at 1pm on Tuesday with speeches prior to the agenda, interpellation, and questions to members of the government. This is followed by a discussion of proposed amendments to the labor code.

According to MTI, MPs are to discuss NGOs and their purpose in Hungary on Wednesday. Recent reports prove NGOs supported by Hungarian-born American financier George Soros have intensified their “attacks” on the Hungarian government and their funding should be transparent. 

Thursday’s parliamentary session will include discussions of an amendment to increase competitiveness and an amendment to the law on news broadcasting.

The four-day session will conclude on April 24.
