Brussels criticizes 'Soros' national consultation questionnaire as government receives strong response from public

János Lázár, the minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office revealed that 1,295,000 Hungarians had sent back the consultation questionnaires which is a remarkably high number, and clearly demonstrates that the people want to state their views on the matter

János Lázár, the minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office, has responded to Guy Verhofstadt, head of the EP’s liberal group, criticism of Hungary’s national consultation. “It is shocking when someone regards consultation with the electorate as anti-democratic,” he said.

Lázár revealed that 1,295,000 Hungarians had sent back the consultation questionnaires which is a remarkably high number, and clearly demonstrates that the people want to state their views on the matter.

He added that the questions included in the national consultation are not related to György Soros’s heritage but are merely intended to assess the people’s opinions on illegal immigration.

The minister also highlighted how left-wing politicians who support unlimited immigration continually attack Hungary in Brussels, and to this end they are exerting pressure on the European institutions as well. This is a political campaign against Hungary, he said.
