In the glare of TV lights, Parliament on Wednesday adopted a series of constitutional amendments declaring Hungary a republic and marking the nation's dramatic return to a multi-party democracy. Deputies in a nationally televised session voted 333 to 5, with eight abstentions, to accept nearly 100 modifications to the 1949 constitution drawn up after the Communist takeover. The vote formally ends one-party domination in the East Bloc nation, which was officially renamed the Republic of Hungary.
