Hungary under Prime Minister Viktor Orban has brought in a new constitution in spite of strong criticism from the opposition at home and from other countries, European Union partners included.
The centre-right Fidesz party government is moving ahead ignoring protesters who say the new moves are undemocratic.
Orban's government has taken advantage of its huge majority in parliament to rewrite Hungary's constitution and pass a series of laws that would require a two-thirds majority to be changed.
This includes cutting parliament to 199 from 386
