DK backs opposition call to hold special session of Parliament

The Democratic Coalition (DK) party announced that it backed the Socialist Party’s call to hold a special session of parliament during the summer. Last month, the Socialists initiated a special session of parliament to amend Hungary’s higher education law after the European Commission stepped up an infringement procedure against Hungary over earlier amendments to the law. Green LMP has supported the call on the condition that suspending evictions in the cases of troubled forex loan holders be added to the agenda.

DK said in a statement that it supported both items being on the agenda of a special parliamentary session . The support of at least 40 lawmakers is required for a special session of parliament to be convened. DK’s support brings the number of MPs backing the initiative to 37.
