Hungarian Parliament Clears Nuke Deal with Russia

From Business Standard

Hungary’s parliament Thursday cleared a contract authorising Russia‘s Rosatom to build two new reactors at the country’s only nuclear power plant, Xinhua reported.

The plant is located in Paks, a town about 100 km south of Budapest on the Danube.

The vote was carried by a sizable majority as the ruling Fidesz party has a two-thirds majority in parliament, and many MPs from the far right Jobbik party voted with it. The other opposition parties were against it, but the overall vote was still 256 to 29.
