Fidesz opposes plans to boycott referendum

Budapest, August 1 (MTI) – The ruling Fidesz party has called on the leftist opposition to clarify its position on the October 2 quota referendum on the European Commission’s plan for “the forced settlement of migrants”, deputy parliamentary leader Gergely Gulyás said.

“Boycotting the vote is tantamount to having no position,” he told a press conference.

The left wing should make clear whether it supports or opposes the commission’s plan, Gulyás said.

Tearing government campaign posters is illegal, something a responsible politician should not encourage anyone to do, he said, referring an initiative by the opposition Egyutt party.

New-Year

Gulyás accused the left wing of doing everything to thwart the referendum and pushing its pro-immigration stance.

In light of the recent acts of terrorism, denying a direct connection between terrorism and migration is an untenable position, he said.
