Áder: The levy on solar panels was our common mistake

Competition

Shortly after the bill was passed, the President of Hungary, János Áder (pictured) said in an open letter to the floor leaders of political factions that the government, the Parliament, the ombudsman and the president made a mistake by voting in favor of the environmental protection levy imposed on solar panels. 

“I also made a mistake when I didn’t notice this nonsense hidden in an omnibus bill,” Áder added, calling for an end to omnibus bills, a practice often used by Fidesz MPs to mix unrelated topics in its legislation. Áder also asked the factions to support initiatives and discussions aimed at resolving this problem.
