Gergely Gulyás, Head of the Prime Minister’s Office, said the government had submitted a proposal to “clarify” regulations regarding the public prosecutor’s election and removal from office.
According to MTI, Gulyás slammed “fake news spreading in the left-wing press”, saying that under Hungarian law, the public prosecutor was elected with a two-thirds majority. The government’s recently submitted amendment proposal is a “clarification”, saying that the prosecutor’s removal should also require two-thirds majority, Gulyás said. Those regulations pertain to all those in public office, he said. “The Constitution clearly states that public dignitaries can be stripped of their office with the same majority that had vested it in them,” he said.
