Amending Fundamental Law Lets Gov’t Continue to Rule by Decree

Although Minister Gergely Gulyás stated at yesterday’s Government Information Briefing that the Fundamental Law would have to be amended for the government to declare a new state of emergency due to the war in Ukraine, HVG‘s Tibor Lengyel believes there is no actual objective justification to do so.

The real reason why he believes the Fundamental Law is being amended, for the tenth time in 10 years, is because “with a new category for a state of emergency to be declared, the government will allow itself the same wide legal room for manuever it has become accustomed to over the past two years, which is governing by decree.” [HVG]
