President Janos Ader has returned another two laws to parliament for review, citing formal deficiencies.
According to parliament’s website, one of the laws was about the setting up of administrative districts and the other one on scrapping hundreds of laws that have become obsolete.
Both pieces of legislation were approved on June 4.
In the first case, the president found an amendment proposed by MP Lajos Kosa of the ruling Fidesz party before the closing vote in contravention to house rules.
Kosa proposed amending the laws on gambling and organised crime, yet his motion was not connected with any clause approved by Parliament previously.
As for the second case, the government’s deregulation package contained amendments to 61 laws; Ader found two problematic.
The amendment to the law decree on civil procedure contained reference to a 2012 law, without specifying its number.
The amendment to the law on national assets stipulates that the sculptures on Parliament Square would be passed from municipal to state property “on … of 2012″, failing to give the exact date.
Ader asked Parliament to reconsider his remarks and approve the laws accordingly.
President Ader has returned five laws to parliament since he entered office on May 10.
