Elections 2018: Jobbik Leader Pledges Anti-Graft Measures 

Hungary Today 2018.04.04.

Jobbik has pledged to implement various measures to combat corruption if it wins power in Sunday’s election.

Planned measures include abolishing the immunity of lawmakers and introducing double punishment for graft, Gabor Vona, the radical nationalist party’s leader, told a press conference on Wednesday. Document secrecy would be lifted in corruption cases, and lawmakers and government members would have to undergo an assessment of their wealth at the start and the end of the four-year governing cycle, he said.

Further, Jobbik would abolish the statute of limitations in the case of criminal graft. Further, a special prosecutor’s office would investigate corruption and Hungary would immediately signal its intention to join the EU’s prosecution office, Vona said.
