Changes to status law not enough for Slovaks

THE HUNGARIAN parliament received the approval of Hungarians living abroad for changes to the controversial status law that gives members of Hungarian minorities in other countries special rights. However, the changes are not enough to satisfy Slovak objections to the law.

Even the leader of the co-ruling Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) in Slovakia, Béla Bugár, said he believed the changes did not go far enough.

The law is intended to encourage Hungarian minorities in other countries to study in Hungarian and feel part of a greater Hungarian community.
