Two years after the adoption of its Resolution 1941 (2013) on a request for the opening of a monitoring procedure
in respect of Hungary, the Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy
takes stock of the evolution of the political situation in Hungary
and in particular of the measures taken by the Hungarian authorities
in the implementation of that resolution.
Regarding the Act on Freedom of Religion and the Status of
Churches, the Act on Elections of Members of the Parliament, the
Act on the Constitutional Court, the Acts on the Judiciary and media
legislation, the committee welcomes the measures taken by the Hungarian
authorities and, noting that not all the Assembly recommendations
have been met, encourages them to continue their dialogue with the
Council of Europe.
The Parliamentary Assembly should therefore ask the Hungarian
authorities to endeavour to solve the outstanding issues and decide
that the special examination of these matters by the Assembly should
now be concluded.
