Deadline for Hungarian government's 'national consultation' questionnaire tomorrow

The Hungarian government will be able to act successfully against “the pressure imposed by Brussels and the organizations of George Soros” if as many people return their questionnaires as possible by Wednesday, Fidesz party's communications director said

More than 1.6 million people have so far returned their “national consultation” questionnaires, with just two days to go before the final deadline on Wednesday.

The Hungarian government will be able to act successfully against “the pressure imposed by Brussels and the organizations of George Soros” if as many people return their questionnaires as possible by Wednesday, Balázs Hidvéghi, Fidesz party's communications director, said.

According to MTI, Fidesz held public forums at more than 130 locations in the past four weeks that attracted over 30,000 people. This shows that the majority of people support the government, reject Brussels’ misguided migrant policy and stand up for Hungary’s sovereignty, Hidvéghi said.

People are concerned about Brussels’ migrant policy putting Hungary and their safety at risk. “Hungarians do not want migrants to flood Europe, they do not want migrants to flood Hungary, they are concerned for their villages and towns, their safety and the safety of their children,” Hidvéghi said.

Hungarians are upset about “the Hungarian left supporting migration, that they would remove the fence and they raise their voices in Brussels’ interests, as most recently when they voted in support of a resolution condemning Hungary in the European Parliament,” he added.

Hidvéghi also said that many Hungarians are concerned about the energy union planned by Brussels that would threaten price regulation and public utility fee cuts.
