Parl't Approves Amendments to Legislation on Judiciary
Lawmakers approved changes to legislation on the judiciary that address concerns over the rule of law aired by the European Commission in a vote on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The changes were cleared with a vote of 151 for, none against, and 23 abstentions.
Justice Minister Judit Varga said late in April that the EC had given Hungary the "green light" regarding judicial reforms that were a condition for accessing the country's European Union funding.
She added that the government had initiated the submission of a package of amendments to lawmakers.
