Hungary’s new parliament will meet for the first time on May 7-8, daily Magyar Idok said on Thursday.
At its first session, the national assembly will discuss the government’s “Stop Soros!” package on “pro-migration civil groups” and a draft on Hungary’s 2019 budget, the daily said.
The composition of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s fourth government is expected to be announced a few weeks after parliament’s first session.
The human rights committee of the Council of Europe has asked the Venice Commission to scrutinise Hungary’s “Stop Soros” bill, the CoE announced on Thursday.
The Commission was asked on March 22 to assess the draft law in light of international human right norms.
The Commission’s report, prepared in cooperation with the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, is expected to be completed late in June.
