Budapest, May 23 (MTI) – Ruling Fidesz is planning to submit its proposal on changes to the electoral law, daily Magyar Hírlap quoted Gergely Gulyás, the party’s deputy group leader, as saying on Monday.
The changes are aimed at introducing different rules concerning the election registration of Hungarian nationals in other countries, as well as campaign financing, Gulyás told the paper.
Under the proposed changes, voters holding dual citizenship would be required to confirm their registration for an upcoming election or indicate changes in their personal data.
As for party financing, Fidesz will propose that parties garnering less than 2 percent of the votes should refund central subsidies received for their election campaign, Gulyás said.
He added that current rules on voters abroad casting their ballot by mail would be left unchanged.
