DK demands withdrawal of science academy bill, minister's departure

June 12th, 2019

The opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) has demanded the withdrawal of proposed legislation on the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA) as well as the resignation of the minister of innovation and technology responsible for the bill. Gergely Arato, DK's deputy group leader, told a press conference on Wednesday that the proposed law would have a negative impact on research and academic life in the country if it were passed. He said Laszlo Palkovics, the innovation and technology minister, had done everything possible in the past year to strip the MTA of its institutes and abolish their autonomy and scientific freedom through "threats and blackmail". The DK politician insisted that thousands of academics did not consider Palkovics morally fit to be a government member responsible for Hungarian science and research.
