The chairman of parliament’s national security committee on Monday convened a meeting for February 21 over “issues of interest to the general public”.
Speaking at a press conference, Zsolt Molnar of the opposition Socialists said he had convened the body for the third time to clarify migration-related issues and an alleged corruption case investigated by Europe’s anti-fraud office OLAF.
Molnar said he would submit a written query to the prime minister and the interior minister about the possible national security risks posed by those issues in case the meeting fails again due to a boycott by lawmakers of the allied ruling Fidesz and Christian Democratic parties.
In its statement, Fidesz urged the opposition parties to campaign among the people instead of using the national security committee for campaign purposes and for serving the “Soros plan”.
The committee was convened twice, first for January 25 and then for February 8, to clarify issues including the so-called Soros Plan on migrants. It, however, failed on both occasions due to the boycott of the ruling parties’ lawmakers. Szilard Nemeth, the committee’s deputy chairman for Fidesz, then explained their move with the presence of LMP co-leader and PM candidate Bernadett Szel, a member of the committee. Fidesz insisted that Szel was not welcome at the meeting because she and her party “serve the interests” of US billionaire George Soros, whose alleged migrant plan and network “pose risks” to Hungary.
