Parliament session begins today and will conclude on Monday with President Áder taking second oath of office

This session will also include the swearing in of János Süli as minister without portfolio in charge of overseeing and managing the upgrade of the Paks nuclear power plant

President János Áder will take his second oath of office for his second term as president at the end of parliament’s upcoming five-day session.

Parliament’s session will begin today with speeches prior to announcing the agenda. This will be followed by the swearing in of János Süli as minister without portfolio in charge of overseeing and managing the upgrade of the Paks nuclear power plant. Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced early last month that he would appoint a minister without portfolio to oversee the project.

According to MTI, the first day is scheduled to conclude with a general debate of a government bill aimed at thwarting covert party financing. Lawmakers will begin Wednesday by passing resolutions.

The house is then expected to approve a number of international treaties and could also amend the law on the chamber of agriculture.

Following the votes, lawmakers are scheduled to debate bills on the advertisement tax and the integration of credit cooperatives.

On Thursday, parliament will discuss government motions concerning healthcare and education as well as the Hungarian Armed Forces’ continuing role in the international fight against the Islamic State terrorist group.

Parliament’s session concludes next Monday with President Áder taking his second oath of office.
