Retail

Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party would back a proposal by its ally, the Christian Democratic People’s Party (KDNP) on the mandatory closing of shops on Sundays only on certain conditions and after amendments, said the head of the party’s parliamentary group. 

Antal Rogán also said this is the first step to make sure no one works on Sundays. The first step of this is the creation of legislation that bans working on Sundays in trade, Rogán told a press conference on Monday. Rogán said that according to their plans, no store could be open on the last day of the week, except those where the owners or members of their family work.
