Hungary Adopts New Constitution

It is with great excitement and honor that I announce the adoption by parliament of Hungary’s new constitution. 

Out of the 385 members of parliament, it has received 262 votes in favor, 44 against and one abstention. The opposition Socialists and left-wing green LMP party boycotted the vote while the far-right Jobbik party voted against the text.

The Hungarian President, Mr Pál Schmitt, is expected to sign the document next week (probably on April 25).

It will enter into force on January 1, 2012.

I am extremely proud of our involvement in this historic endeavor and our ongoing cooperation with the government on the advancement of fundamental rights.

    It is very disappointing that so few of our clergy & religious leaders do not reached out to defend our jobless, and especially the long term unemployed (who are typically age 50 and older) no longer eligible to receive unemployment benefits and always the last to find a job (if ever) with the same vigor put toward abortion issues.

    All though I respect and support your stand and concerns regarding abortions; It is very perplexing that there is not more being done in establishing job work shops, job placement with in the church community and financial aid when necessary.

    It is very difficult to pull one’s self up my their boot straps, when even their boots boots are gone !!

    Thank you for allowing me to voice my views, and I await your response.
    Sincere regards,
