Health Care May Be Transferred to Interior Ministry

It could take two more weeks for the final list of names in the fifth Orbán government to become official, but a recent bill in Parliament confirms previously-leaked news that authority over health care in the new cabinet may be transferred from the Ministry of Human Resources to the Ministry of the Interior, which is expected to continue to be headed by Sándor Pintér.

The amendment to the law was posted on Parliament’s website at almost the same time as the tenth amendment to the Fundamental Law, which was submitted by Justice Minister Judit Varga.

The government has cited the war in Ukraine and its humanitarian effects to justify the latest amendment to Hungary’s constitution, extending the state of emergency to cover this situation and thereby permit the Cabinet to continue to govern by decree. [HVG]
