Election office to also submit Socialists’ referendum initiative to committee
Budapest, February 28 (MTI) – Two referendum initiatives about Sunday shopping restrictions, one submitted by a private individual and another by the head of the opposition Socialists István Nyakó, will be submitted to the election committee, the head of Hungary’s election office said on Sunday.
The election initiatives were submitted to the office on Tuesday and Nyakó’s came only four seconds after the first submission, said Ilona Pálffy.
Since mid-September 2015, the election office has been accepting only time-stamped submissions and the time-stamp prescribes the order of assessment. In line with the election law, a second question on the same subject cannot be accepted unless the first question is refused.
