More, longer, faster – 30 years of legislation in Hungary

Since 1990 more than 5000 statutes were passed by the Hungarian National Assembly, one third of them are in force to date. The speed of legislation of the highest in the region: it takes on average less then 5 weeks for a bill to become law. This results often in rule by law instead of rule of law, a high number of corrective measures and intransparency in the legal system. The legislative framework of legislation is well structured, but the above tendencies undermine the rule of law.
