Sólyom rejects bill on appointing constitutional jurors

Hungarian President László Sólyom has sent back to Parliament for reconsideration a Fidesz proposal which would allow sitting governments to nominate constitutional lawmakers.

Currently, each parliamentary party has one representative on the committee.

Sólyom said Parliament should change the current nomination rules to better serve the independence of constitutional court judges. (
