OMRI DAILY DIGEST
No. 28, 8 February 1996

SLOVAK LANGUAGE LAW TO GO TO HIGH COURT. The opposition Christian
Democratic Movement (KDH) and Hungarian Christian Democratic Movement
(MKDH) agreed on 7 February to take the state language law to the
Constitutional Court, Pravda reported. The Hungarian coalition--which
has argued that the law infringes on minority rights--wants to lodge the
complaint as "urgent" so it will be addressed as quickly as possible.
The KDH was the only Slovak party that did not vote in favor of the law.
MKDH Chairman Bela Bugar announced he intends to ask Prime Minister
Vladimir Meciar for a meeting to discuss minority language usage and the
new territorial administration bill. -- Sharon Fisher

HUNGARY READY FOR OECD MEMBERSHIP. The last obstacle to Hungarian
membership in the OECD was removed on 7 February, when an OECD committee
on foreign investment gave its approval, Reuters and Hungarian media
reported. One day earlier, the committee had met in Paris with a
delegation led by Finance Minister Lajos Bokros. Hungary can now join
the organization as early as March, which would make it the second post-
communist country, after the Czech Republic, to do so. Membership is
conditional on parliamentary approval of amendments to the bank secrecy
act. -- Sharon Fisher
