Gulyas to speak at the extraordinary session

The Hungarian parliament is holding an extraordinary session tomorrow, convened by opposition parties Jobbik and MSZP. According to ATV‘s information, the session will have no quorum.
Fidesz group leader Gergely Gulyas speaks before the agenda, but together with the lawmakers of the ruling Fidesz-KDNP alliance, he won’t attend the rest of the session, so it won’t have quorum. The opposition parties also wanted to hear Prime Minister Viktor Orban – who according to Magyar Nemzet’s earlier information was about to attend the event -, but he meets Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and other members of the Austrian government on Tuesday in Vienna.

Jobbik and MSZP convened the session to discuss that the government “secretly admitted 1300 migrants” last year. The opposition parties want to establish a commission of inquiry. According to the opposition parties the government misled the people with their anti-migration propaganda, while letting in migrants. They stressed several times that Fidesz’s argument about admitting refugees according to the Geneva Convention is invalid, because for the last two years the ruling parties didn’t distinguish between migrants and refugees and only spoke about the dangers of migration and spent billions on propaganda and the national consultations about the so-called “Soros plan” whose existence nobody can prove.

According to ATV, Gulyas leaves right after his speech and won’t vote about the agenda. This means that the chairman of the meeting will have to end the session.
