Change of regime in Hungary: postponed due to lack of interest


Another landslide victory for Fidesz: that is the outcome of the April 3 national elections, as the constitutional regime change has been eventually postponed due to lack of interest. Nobody can predict the future; nevertheless, based on the characteristics of the current Hungarian political regime and the major trends of the last 12 years, one can take some educated guesses as to what the future may bring. In this short piece I argue that in the next parliamentary term, the Orbán-regime will most probably be less democratic than ever before. 


The devil lies in the procedural details: the Conditionality Regulation saga


The aim of this short article is to give an overview of the Conditionality Regulation saga, from the emergence of the idea to the potential and long overdue activation of the mechanism after the delivery of the ECJ judgment. I will point out that all the main issues of this years-long struggle concerned primarily procedural questions, while discussions about the actual rule of law infringements taking place in Hungary and Poland took a backseat.
