Hungarian government send out next round of national consultation surveys to solicit citizen input

The Hungarian government will send questionnaires to households next week in the latest round of national consultations

The Hungarian government will send questionnaires to households next week in the latest round of national consultations, State Secretary Csaba Dömötör has said.

The national consultations are aimed at getting input from the people on important questions and for the government to implement its proposed changes in the best way possible.

According to MTI, the government is seeking voter support “for retaining the regulation of taxes, wages, and public utilities as a national competence," the state secretary said. “Brussels aims to strip member states of their rights in several areas," he said, adding that “Brussels must be stopped”.

The government also wants to increase transparency “in terms of activist groups financed from abroad,” Dömötör said.

“Participating in the national consultation is a strong manifestation of support for Hungary’s independence," the state secretary added.

Respondents can return their questionnaires free of charge before May 20, he said, adding that the government would soon publish the estimated cost of the survey.
