The paper is entitled to give a brief interpretation for some segment of the new Fundamental Law of Hungary. Before the adoption and also later on it was a subject of an extensive academic and political discourse both on the domestic and on the international level. As a part of this debate a number of comments were formulated in regard to the process of adoption and the content of the text. Many of these criticism were based on wrong interpretation or misunderstanding. In those days the Hungarian legal system went through many significant changes and countless new or amended acts were adopted. Despite all attempts, in this legislative revolution it was extremely hard for the government to communicate everything properly to the outside world. The lack of communication and the wilful misinterpretations of some sections hindered the appreciation of the Fundamental Law. Many significant issues are paraphrased in the text like: creation of the Fundamental Law, references to Christianity, the institution of marriage, protection of foetal life and the state’s responsibility for the Hungarians living beyond the border. The aim of this work is to clarify those judged sections and help the understanding of the meanings and the reasons behind the relevant changes.
