József Ángyán quits Fidesz parliamentary group
Former states secretary József Ángyán Friday announced he is leaving the parliamentary group of the governing Fidesz party after the ratification of a new law regulating farmland leases. Ángyán has been critical of his own party in matters concerning the redistribution of farmland licenses, which was the main reason he relinquished his post in the cabinet. Ángyán said the new law places the control of farmland into shady background business interests at the expense of locals who actually work the fields. The law was passed among scandalous conditions with opposition representatives staging performances and disrupting the House’s routine.
