National consultation survey on the “Soros plan” attracted a record 2.3 million responses

Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács expressed his thanks on behalf of the government to all who sent in their answers and said the high participation reflected that this was a national issue that would determine the future of Hungary and the European Union in the long-term

Hungary’s national consultation survey on the “Soros plan” attracted a record 2,332,755 responses by Friday’s deadline, the government announced.

Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács revealed that 2,154,264 were submitted in printed form and an additional 178,491 were filled in online.

Kovács expressed his thanks on behalf of the government to all who sent in their answers and said the high participation reflected that this was a national issue that would determine the future of Hungary and the European Union in the long-term.

He said the questions concerned not only the “Soros plan” but also migration in general, including its illegal form. The processing of the returned questionnaires will be completed in the next few days, he added.

The spokesman also announced that Péter Szijjártó, minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, would be attending a hearing by the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) which, he says, clearly demonstrate the intensity of the attempts of “Soros organizations” to “trample over” and convince anti-migration governments and political forces to change their minds.

George Soros has now personally joined the campaign by expressing a wish to develop a rural network in Hungary, he said. This move is also aimed at changing Hungary’s policy on migration and toppling the government in office.

“It is clear that these rural organizations will also work towards promoting migration rather than halting it,” he said. “I would like to remind everyone that it is political parties that run in the elections and, in line with the rules of democracy, those elected by the voters get a mandate to have a say in decision-making. Any attempts to influence the elections by circumventing this go against the basic rules of democracy,” he added.
