(MTI) – Parties have until 4pm on April 22 to register their lists for the European parliamentary election scheduled for May 25, a decree published in the official gazette Magyar Kozlony on Monday said.
Under the decree issued by the Ministry of Public Administration and Justice, the official campaign will start on April 5. To enter a list for the EP election, parties should collect at least 20,000 valid signatures by 34 days prior to the election date and register their list with the National Election Committee (NVB).
Non-Hungarian EU citizens who have residence in Hungary (slightly more than 100,000 people according to NVB figures) can request by 4pm on May 9 to be included in the Hungarian voter register if they wish to vote for Hungarian party lists.
Hungarians who will be outside the country on the day of the vote can also submit their vote on any of Hungary’s 97 representative offices abroad if they register to do so by 4pm on May 17.
