Two-thirds of Hungarians approve of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s new family assistance measures.

According to the Nézőpont Institute, 63 percent of 541 people surveyed expressed satisfaction with the planned measures.

The survey also found that the government’s anti-migration stance was met with “a consensus at least as broad”, with 64 percent of the respondents against the European Union “revisiting mandatory migrant quotas” after the upcoming European parliamentary elections.

In a survey of 500 people conducted by the Századvég Foundation, 73 percent of respondents expressed a favourable opinion of the prime minister’s state-of-the-nation address, as well as the family assistance measures he outlined in the speech.

Among the seven new family benefits, a three-year program to expand creche places drew the largest support, with 94 percent of respondents approving of the measure.
