Latest National Consultation survey receives a record 1.7 million responses

Csaba Dömötör said “the real political struggle is just starting” because the plan to relocate migrants on a mandatory basis without an upper limit “is now being implemented”

Hungary's latest “National Consultation” survey has so far received a record 1.7 million responses from the public, it has been revealed.

In a video message posted on Facebook, Csaba Dömötör, parliamentary state secretary at the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister, said there was “a good reason” for the record participation rate in the public survey which canvassed opinion on the so-called “Soros Plan”, in reference to US billionaire George Soros' plan to import migrants into Europe and distribute them among EU member states.

The state secretary said “the real political struggle is just starting” because the plan to relocate migrants on a mandatory basis without an upper limit “is now being implemented”.

Dömötör said the issue did not concern a domestic political struggle but rather Hungary’s future. He encouraged everyone to take part in the consultation and help to support the government and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s fight against the plan.
