When the centre-right government took power, it announced the drafting of a new constitution. The Committee is headed by Jozsef Szajer, an MEP of the ruling party, and by two other members, Gergely Gulyas of Fidesz and Laszlo Salamon of the Christian Democrats. The wording of Article 9 does not mention sexual orientation, even though it could be understood to be included [Budapester Zeitung report, in German]. Article 7 defines marriage and protects family. The suggested text reads: "The Constitution . . . places marriage as the most fundamental and natural union between man and woman . . . and the family stemming therefrom under special protection".
The Socialist Party is protesting against the procedure chosen for the revision by not taking part in the discussion.
