BUDAPEST: Hungary’s government moved on Monday to scrap an unpopular year-old ban on Sunday trading for most shops, avoiding what looked set to be an embarrassing referendum defeat on the issue for PM Viktor Orban. “Government proposes that parliament abolishes the legislation and reinstates the previous system,” Antal Rogan, Orban’s cabinet chief, said. Parliament could vote on the proposal as soon as Tuesday, meaning shops could be trading again next Sunday.
