BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Hungary’s state audit office said Thursday that it has suspended the disbursement of state funds to a key opposition party because of irregularities with the party’s finances.
The State Audit Office said that the left-wing Democratic Coalition’s financial statements for 2017-2018, when the party received the equivalent of about $1.57 million in state funds, “do not show a reliable and real picture of the party’s revenues and expenditures.”
For its part, the party of former Socialist Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany described the audit office’s proceedings as unlawful.
The audit office is headed by a former lawmaker from Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s party, Laszlo Domokos.
In the past few years, the audit office has doled out considerable fines against several opposition parties or temporarily suspended their state funding, also because of alleged financial irregularities.
The opposition says the office is politically biased and is carrying out Orban’s political will.

Aside from the mental and emotional challenge that some employees face from not having a defined workplace outside of the home, there are logistical challenges for businesses to ensure their employees can manage their work efficiently and effectively.

It all happened so fast. And as an investor, it may be tough to think of investing in the market now, or ever again. But history favors those investors who have stayed the course even in the midst of a severe bear market that will quite possibly dip the economy into a recession.
And that’s why we’ve identified 8 technology companies that are poised to have a breakout moment in this time of social distancing.
