(MTI) – More than 210,000 naturalised Hungarians without a permanent address in Hungary have so far asked to register for the April 6 election, the website of the National Election Office shows.
So far 174,369 have registered altogether, 94,114 in Romania, 26,937 in Serbia, 1,977 in Germany and 1,017 in the US. The office registered 3,334 individuals from countries that ban dual citizenship.
Ethnic Hungarians abroad without a permanent address in Hungary can register for the April 6 election until March 22, and can do so online at www.nvi.hu. They must vote by mail and can only vote for a party list.
Last week Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen announced the 600,000th application received from abroad for naturalisation. The number of those granted Hungarian citizenship under a fast-track procedure will rise to 550,000 in a matter of weeks, he added.
Hungarians beyond the border will, for the first time, be able to vote at the upcoming election on April 6.
