Budapest (MTI) – The parliamentary group of ruling Fidesz has welcomed the National Election Office’s decision to green-light a government sponsored referendum seeking a popular rejection of European Union’s mandatory migrant quota.

Fidesz group spokesman János Halász said that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán would go to Brussels for the upcoming European Council session armed with news of the upcoming referendum, emboldening other EU members to follow suit.

Halasz said he trusted parliament would swiftly put the referendum on its agenda, after which President János Áder will set a date for the public vote.

Orbán announced last week that the government had decided to call a referendum on the European Union’s proposed mandatory migrant quota scheme.

At the referendum, voters will be asked “Do you want to allow the European Union to mandate the resettlement of non-Hungarian citizens to Hungary without the approval of the National Assembly”.

    Results of more EC dumb decisions. Hungary again is out in the lead to keep Europe’s forgement. Orban and the V4 are throwing the fire on to toughen and protect Europe by annealing EU’s attempts to try to break it and it’s long and prosperous civilization of nations. If the EC think that they can rule in mad decisions without public consultation and attack a nation willing to bring forth a referendum on what the poeple may voice. Then the EC is dumb enough to wage war on it’s citizens.
