A legislative amendment proposal submitted to the Legislative Committee of the Parliament would abolish the interim local government election, according to Magyar Nemzet.
Reportedly, if a seat becomes vacant, it could be filled from the electoral list by the party that previously nominated the representative.
The document would also make changes to the compensation list. Parties could only do this in settlements with more than 10,000 people and in the capital if they nominated candidates in at least two-thirds of individual districts and Budapest districts.
The application applies to the one-year period preceding the local government election.
