Hungary’s stance on death penalty and immigration: MEPs to vote on resolution 

A resolution wrapping up the May plenary debate with Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans will be put to a vote on Wednesday. The debate was sparked by Mr Orban's remarks on the possibility of reinstating capital punishment in Hungary and a public consultation on immigration launched by the Hungarian government.

These issues were first discussed during a meeting in the Civil Liberties Committee on Thursday 7 May, after Parliament's Conference of Presidents had asked the committee to examine them as a "matter of urgency".

Procedure: Non-legislative resolution


Debate: Tuesday, 19 May

Vote: Wednesday, 10 June
