Hungary's Parliament Blocks Amendment on Ban of Settlement of Asylum Seekers

EU | November 8, 2016, Tuesday // 15:00|  views


Hungary’s Parliament has rejected the constitutional amendment proposed by PM Viktor Orban for a ban on the settlement of asylum seekers in Hungary, reported Reuters.

After the failure of the referendum on migrant quotas, this is a new blow against the Prime Minister which can make it difficult for him to continue with his fight against the migrant policy of the EU.

A total of 131 deputies voted for the amendment out of 133 votes needed for its approval, or two-thirds of the votes in the 199-seat Parliament.
