President signs law on Paks nuclear power plant upgrade
President János Áder has signed a law on the upgrade of the Paks nuclear power plant, according to a statement from the president's office. According to the president, nothing in the law from the point of view of the constitution could be considered objectionable, nor was there any point of which deserved to be sent back to lawmakers for reconsideration.
Áder also examined the issue of whether the law should be put to a referendum after a request by the opposition, and determined that, on the basis of the constitution, there was no basis for holding a plebiscite in the case of an obligation deriving from an international contract.
“Such an initiative is beyond the bounds of any citizen, and this includes the president himself,” Áder stated.
