Hungary held its general elections and a national referendum on 3 April 2022. The Parliament adopted an omnibus bill after the elections based on a package of proposals of the National Election Office. Some of the amendments may be considered positive, however, there are some worrisome changes which might weaken the fairness of the upcoming elections.
The summary of the new amendments is available here.
The Hungarian Helsinki Committee prepared an in-depth analysis of the decisions delivered by state bodies on election- and referendum-related remedial requests. The paper highlights typical problems when seeking legal remedy, and some problematic cases affecting high number of people or severe breaches of law.
The analysis with an executive summary is available here.
