Parliament, which has a full slate of bills needed for European Union entry, did not open its March session as expected after the SMK ethnic Hungarian party refused to support the order of debate. The order contained two bills, one from the SMK’s ruling coalition partner, the Christian Democrats, which are aimed against a controversial Status Law on Hungarians living abroad passed by Budapest last summer. Ruling coalition parties will try again today to open the legislative session.
