Coronavirus Update: New national consultation launched to gauge opinions on pandemic

PM Orbán announced the launch of a new survey to gauge the public’s opinion on a range of issues connected with the novel coronavirus epidemic and measures to restart the economy.

 

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has announced the launch of a new survey to gauge the public’s opinion on a range of issues connected with the novel coronavirus epidemic and measures to restart the economy.

According to MTI, the “National Consultation” will be carried out by the government this month. PM Orbán said that the questionnaire was ready for the most part, and the survey, to be sent to households by post, was expected to get under way immediately.

One question on the survey concerns financier George Soros and his “plan” to issue perpetual bonds that, PM Orbán insisted, would lead to “debt slavery”.

The prime minister said the introduction of the emergency legal order had been “one of the best decisions of the past ten years”. The speed of decision-making was of the essence, he said, adding however that having won “the first battle” against the epidemic, the government’s enhanced powers were no longer needed. Heeding parliament, “the government can no longer issue a decree on a matter where a law needs to be made,” he said.

A call center set up for advice on the coronavirus can be reached on +36-80-277-455 and +36-80-277-456 or by email koronavirus@bm.gov.hu
