Five parties agree on amending constitution

The five parties with seats in Parliament on Monday agreed on amending the Constitution to clear the way for forming the country's next government.

The constitutional amendment will declare that the government is free to decide on how many ministries and organs of public administration it wants and on what to call them. However, the opposition rejected the governing parties' proposal to reintroduce the post of deputy minister, arguing that the step would be incompatible with Hungarian constitutional traditions. The governing parties therefore decided that each minister would have a state secretary as deputy.
The parties agreed to resume discussions on further bills that need two-thirds majority support after the government has taken its oath of office on June 9.
