Hungary is "within touching distance" of an agreement with the European Commission on its Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) funding, Justice Minister Judit Varga said in a post on Facebook on Tuesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Varga said there's "a very good chance" an agreement on drawing down the funding could be reached in the second half of the year.

She added that her ministry had submitted two bills to parliament on Tuesday "in the interest of advancing the process". 

The bills, which take into consideration the EC's recommendations, would ensure time for social consultation before legislating on the initiative of the government and allow legal appeals against decisions by the prosecutor general, she said.
