Hungaria Constitution Provokes Criticism

“I think this constitution will rather undermine the stability of the system and not strengthen the institutional system, because the main problem is that there is no political census around this constitution and the legitimacy of this constitution can be questioned by several political forces,” research director at the Political Capital Institution, Peter Kreko, told a Press TV correspondent.

Critics say the text passed by the Hungarian parliament, dominated by the center-right Christian Fidesz party, secures the power of the Church and traditional family, and poses a threat to the country's financial progress and human rights record.

During a recent visit to Hungary, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon voiced his concern over the country's democratic institutions, particularly the recent media reforms under the constitution.

Some Hungarians by taking to the streets showed their opposition to reforms, such as early pensions for selected social groups, which they call unfair economic policies.

Critics sharing similar views say the constitution fails to meet the European human rights and media freedom legislation.
