Law makers took their oaths in the traditional ceremony.

A member of the far-right Jobbik party which made significant gains in April was approved as one of six deputy presidents.

At the election, ruling Fidesz and the Christian Democrats secured 133 seats.

The left-of-centre opposition alliance will sit in separate groups: Socialists (29), E-PM (4), Democratic Coalition (4), and the Liberal Party (1) seats.

Radical nationalist Jobbik will have 23 and green LMP 5 deputies.
