Fidesz calls for support of European initiative on protecting national regions

The European Citizens’ Initiative for the Equality of the Regions and Sustainability of the Regional Cultures was launched by the Szekler National Council.

The ruling Fidesz party is calling for support of a signature drive for a European initiative on protecting national regions.

The European Citizens’ Initiative for the Equality of the Regions and Sustainability of the Regional Cultures was launched by the Szekler National Council.

The initiative aims to convince the European Commission to create a cohesion policy that pays special attention to regions with national, ethnic, cultural, religious or linguistic characteristics that are different from those of the surrounding regions.

For the initiative launched on May 7 last year to be successful, at least one million supporting signatures are needed from seven member states by May 7 this year.
