PÁRBESZÉD TURNS TO PRESIDENT OVER PROTECTION OF LAKES

 

The opposition Párbeszéd party on Thursday said it is turning to President János Áder after parliament’s sustainable development committee rejected an opposition bill aimed at protecting Hungary’s natural lakes. Párbeszéd MP Olivio Kocsis-Cake told a press conference that his party, the Democratic Coalition, Jobbik, LMP and the Socialists are seeking Áder’s help in integrating their proposals on the protection of Hungary’s natural lakes into the country’s legal system. The opposition bill recently voted down by the sustainable development committee’s ruling Fidesz majority had been drafted by NGOs operating near Hungary’s lakes, Kocsis-Cake said. He said the bill would have proposed solutions to environmental problems plaguing the Lake Balaton, Lake Fertő, Lake Öreg and Lake Velence areas.
