After Brexit and Hungary’s current situation in the European Union, many people wonder if Huxit could be an option. Recently, there was a survey in which Hungarian citizens expressed their opinion regarding this matter.
In an article, Daily News Hungary wrote that Minister of Finance Mihály Varga said that by the end of the 2020s, the European Union would have fewer benefits for Hungary than disadvantages. He also said that
despite the fact that 69% of Hungarians want to change the currency to the euro, it would be too soon to do so.
An anonymous political analyst stated in the past that “both the EU and NATO are more than favourable for us; they are the indispensable base of the Hungarian budget and the national protection and security politics.”
A political scientist named Tamás Fricz recently wrote that “…the time has come, now in July 2021, to seriously consider the possibility of our withdrawal from a union of states with a thousand bleeding wounds, showing imperial symptoms, and treating the Eastern and Central European countries incredibly arrogantly,” Daily News Hungary reported earlier.
But do Hungarians want to leave the European Union? Medián did a survey in July, and it turns out that
the majority of Hungarians do not want to leave the EU. Moreover, 79% of Fidesz supporters also want to stay.
There are many reasons behind this decision. The free movement of goods, persons, and services has a huge part in how people think of the benefits of being an EU Member State. There are few Hungarian families who do not have someone among their acquaintances, friends or family members who either work or study abroad. Compared to the United Kingdom, Hungary would be in a more difficult situation had Huxit happened, wrote napi.hu.
