The parliamentary mandate and immunity committee has recommended that disciplinary proceedings be launched against ethnic Hungarian politician Miklós Duray over comments he made in favour of former Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán. Duray, who had said that “Felvidék“, the old Hungarian name for Slovakia, supported Duray, did not attend the committee meeting. Nationalist politicians have threatened to prevent Duray from entering parliament when the May session starts today.
