Hungay’s National Election Committee (NVB) has verified and approved signatures gathered for a European Citizens’ Initiative on preventing food fraud.
At its meeting on Thursday, it certified that 62 valid signatures have been collected.
The “Eat ORIGINal! Unmask your food” initiative’s organisers want compulsory declarations of origin for all food produce and to ensure consumers’ right to relevant information.
The European Commission registered the Citizens’ Initiative on October 2, 2018.
Meanwhile, NVB withheld approval of the green opposition LMP’s new “green referendum” questions at its meeting today. The questions were submitted by László Heltai, a founding member of the LMP.
