Zoltán Kovács, the state secretary for international communication and relations, has revealed that a total of 1,172,000 people have filled out the government's latest National Consultation public survey.
“This goes to show that there’s an extremely powerful message being formulated that can’t even be ignored in Brussels,” Kovács said in a video message on Facebook. He said representatives of the European left had continually indicated before the holidays that “they’re working to bypass the will of the Hungarian people” on issues like migration, “the financing of war” and the scrapping of the caps on household utility prices. The state secretary thanked those who have filled out the survey as well as those who are going to do so. Kovács said earlier that the survey was aimed at addressing the issue of migration. The European Union’s approach to illegal migration has not changed since 2015 while the issue has become particularly topical now “when a new migration package has been pushed through and adopted in Brussels” despite the fact that arranging the movement of migrants is now in the hands of radical groups…,” Kovács said.
