GULYÁS: LOCAL ASSEMBLIES ALLOWED TO RECONVENE FROM JUNE 15

 

Local assemblies will be allowed to reconvene and meet as they had prior to the introduction of the special legal order in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, the prime minister’s chief of staff has said. Under a decision issued by the government’s working group in charge of the special legal order, the emergency powers of mayors granting them the authority to perform the functions of local assemblies will expire on June 15, Gergely Gulyás told MTI. The prime minister on Saturday will sign an amendment to the legislation governing the powers of local assemblies, which will be published in the official gazette Magyar Közlöny over the weekend, he added. “With the return to normality, we consider it important to ensure that local councils are allowed to resume their normal operations,” Gulyás said.
