Hungary's government has issued a new declaration of a state of emergency due to the war in Ukraine and the resulting humanitarian crisis in the official gazette Magyar Közlöny, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The new declaration was made at the same time the earlier state of emergency, declared in the spring, ceased as amendments to the constitution came into force from November 1. Those amendments expanded the government's mandate to declare a state of emergency to cases of war or humanitarian catastrophes in neighboring countries.
The Government Information Centre (KTK) told MTI on Friday that the government would propose to lawmakers an extension of the state of emergency.
