The Fidesz party in Hungary has issued a request to the Speaker of the Parliament, László Kövér, to convene an extraordinary parliamentary session on Thursday. This comes as an addition to the already planned extraordinary sessions slated for Monday and Tuesday. These sessions were intended for discussions including a general debate on the 'sovereignty' legislative package.
Fidesz's Motivation for Extraordinary Session
The reason for the additional Thursday session, as revealed by Fidesz parliamentary group leader Máté Kocsis, is to discuss the State Audit Office's report on its 2022 activities and management and to consider the corresponding resolution proposal. Kocsis has attached the necessary number of parliamentary signatures to his request.
Parliament's Response and Proposed Agenda
The House Committee is expected to make a formal decision concerning the request on Tuesday. The proposed agenda for this extraordinary session includes only two items, both linked to the State Audit Office's report.
