DK NOT TO VOTE FOR GOVT FAMILY PROTECTION PLAN

 

Lawmakers of the leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) party will not vote for the government’s action plan for family protection as it supports only a wealthy minority of Hungarian families, the party said. Zsolt Gréczy, spokesman of the party’s parliamentary group, noted that DK has submitted its own package of proposal for families, but the ruling Fidesz and Christian Democrat parties rejected it before it had a chance of going before parliament. Answering a question on whether the opposition parties consulted each other on the action plan, Gréczy said that the opposition parties decided independently on their approach to the proposal.
