Many amendments needed for public admin reform

Coalition politicians believe up to 100 laws may need to be changed for proposed reform of public administration. Hungarian Coalition (SMK) MP Gyula Bárdos believes that the process has not been well thought out.

"The huge number [of amendments] and short time frame may mean that it will be a failure, or that there will be many problems," said Bárdos. He added that he didn't think it would be possible to make the changes before the intended date of January 1, 2004.

Last year's change of local administration, when district councils where abolished, required amendments to 64 laws.
