Budapest (MTI) – The National Election Committee turned down a referendum initiative by the opposition Dialogue for Hungary (PM) party concerning a planned upgrade of the Paks nuclear plant, on Monday.

The initiative, submitted by PM’s MEP Benedek Jávor, was aimed at thwarting the cooperation agreement between the Hungarian and Russian governments, under which the project is to be implemented.

In its decision, the committee referred to the constitution and said that a referendum cannot be held in connection with issues governed by international accords.
