Parlt cttee approves constitutional amendments on Christian culture, homelessness

Parliament’s legislative committee on Thursday approved two constitutional amendment proposals on “the preservation of Hungary’s Christian culture” and on banning homelessness.

The proposed amendments have been submitted by lawmakers of ruling Fidesz.

Under the first one, the fundamental law would oblige all state organisations to “protect Hungary’s self-identity and Christian culture”. “There is no Europe and Hungary without Christian culture,” the proponents said, citing recent developments in Europe that could “culturally transform the continent overall”.

The other amendment is for inserting a provision into the constitution that would create the legal conditions for banning people from living in public spaces given that everyone without a home is guaranteed shelter under state or local council schemes.

Pal Volner, the justice ministry’s state secretary, told the committee that the was supporting the proposed amendments.
