A new unity has been established
04. 10. 2016.
At a press conference in the Parliament Building on Tuesday, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that “The fact that in the referendum on 2 October there was a 98 per cent majority voting ‘no’ to mandatory relocation means that a new unity has been established in Hungary: a unity beyond party politics, which regards protecting our sovereignty as a national issue”.

The Prime Minister told the press that “We plan to amend the Constitution on four points, including one stipulating that the collective settlement of people in Hungary shall be prohibited; such settlement shall only be permitted on the basis of individual requests”. He added that the Cabinet would be reviewing the planned Bill in its Wednesday session.

At a press conference following Tuesday’s meeting of the ruling parties’ parliamentary groups, head of the Fidesz group Lajos Kósa said: “Initiatives supported by the Fidesz-KDNP parliamentary groups must be put before the House by 10 October, after which Parliament will debate them on 17 November and hold a vote on 8 November. This means that, if adopted, the legislation could come into force in mid-November.”
