Further Details
Abstract As a result of the restructuring of the mechanism of power after the system change in 1989, an unusual high degree of power concentration has taken place in Hungary compared to the rest of Europe. In Hungary, a Constitutional Court keeps in check the parliamentary majority and the government, and this Constitutional Court is relatively perhaps more powerful than any other judiciary body anywhere in the world.
