Hungary referendum on October 2, Hungarian referendum  Dates Opinion Poll Result ,EU Referendum, Prime Minister Viktor Orban, quota referendum, president János Áder, European Union

Nearly 98% of those who took part supported the government's call to reject the EU plan.
But only 43% of the electorate voted, short of the 50% required to be valid.

 

The Hungarian president János Áder has announced the date for the so-called “quota referendum” for October 2.

  1. Voters will be asked: 'Do you want the EU to prescribe the mandatory relocation of non-Hungarian citizens to Hungary without the approval of the Hungarian parliament?'
  2. Budapest says that the plan – which has been extremely slow to get going – violates its national sovereignty and that 'terrorists' might enter the country disguised as migrants.
  3. As of July 1, fewer than 2,800 people – 789 from Italy and 1,994 from Greece – have been relocated, according to EU data. Hungary has made zero places available but is meant to take in 1,294 people.
  4. Orban has long had a testy relationship with Brussels with critics saying that his shake-up of Hungarian institutions from 2010 – since mirrored in fellow EU member Poland – has undermined democracy.
