At its meeting of 3 September 2020, the Members discussed a petition challenging the special legislation adopted by the Hungarian government during the COVID-19 state of emergency.

The petitioner alleges that the powers granted to the government under said legislation are disproportionate, in breach of the fundamental principles of the European Union and exceed the limits set by the Hungarian Constitution. The petitioner is also concerned about a potential indefinite extension of this controversial legislation.
