Rogán: Merger of cbank, finance watchdog only a possibility
If parliament approves the amendment proposing a merger of the tasks and powers of the central bank and financial watchdog PSZAF, that will only create a possibility, and the new rule would not automatically lead to a merger, head of parliament’s economic and IT committee Antal Rogan said on Thursday.
A possible merger could take place any time later, "even as late as in 2015", Mr Rogan said, adding that any merger should be stipulated in a cardinal law, requiring a two-third majority in parliament and it would also warrant an amendment to the law on the central bank.
A new law on the central bank is right now debated in parliament after the government introduced the relevant bill on Wednesday.
