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.

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.
