SMK demands nearly met

Parliament is to vote later today on a reform bill specifying which powers should be devolved from the central government to newly created regional elected assemblies; passage of the bill by September 30 had been a key demand by the ethnic Hungarian SMK party for its remaining in government. Final discussion of five other related bills have been delayed until the first week in October as parliament is to recess given the many international commitments of legislators following attacks on the United States.
