Hungary Anti Government Protest

Former Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany says the country needs to hold a referendum on the plans of the center-right government led by Viktor Orban to draft a new constitution by next year.
Gyurcsany, speaking Tuesday near parliament to a few thousand demonstrators, also says efforts by Orban's Fidesz party to ban the Constitutional Court from ruling on state finance issues are undermining Hungary's democracy.
Fidesz is seen to be limiting the court's powers because of fears it will strike down a series of temporary "crisis taxes" needed to meet strict budget deficit targets set with the EU and the IMF.
Orban government's has support from more than two-thirds of lawmakers, allowing it to pass legislation, including a new constitution.
