DK calls on Orban to drop migration quota referendum
Budapest (MTI) – The leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) has called on Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to drop plans of holding a referendum aimed against the European Union’s mandatory migrant quotas.
DK leader Ferenc Gyurcsány said in a statement that Friday’s European Union – Turkey agreement removed any basis for the “treacherous” initiative, leaving “nothing for Orban to incite hatred against”.
The EU has made a good decision, the statement said, adding that “Orbán’s policy promoting individual solutions by member states” has failed. In future the prime minister will not be in a position “to cover up the failure of his government, the collapse of health care and education, through creating a hysteria around migrants”, it said.
