Parliament to vote on extending energy office jurisdictions
Parliament is set to grant the Hungarian Energy Office (MEH) decree-making jurisdiction in an unscheduled house session on Thursday. The government decided on the rushed legal changes after a court ruled in favor of energy firms that filed a case against MEH in relation to the government’s mandatory household energy cost reduction effort. Officials of the governing Fidesz party, including Prime Minister Viktor Orbán strongly criticized the court decision and stated that the energy cost slashing will move ahead and chose to change the law to take away any reparation platforms the energy companies may approach.
