Majority of Hungarians want fight against migrant quotas to continue – Survey

Almost three quarters of Hungarians surveyed by the Századvég Foundation before Wednesday’s European court ruling want the government to pursue its fight against the European Union’s mandatory migrant resettlement scheme.

Fully 72 percent of respondents said the fight should continue even if the European Court of Justice rejected the Hungarian lawsuit, Századvég said.

The Luxembourg-based court earlier today dismissed a case launched by Hungary and Slovakia challenging the legality of the EU’s migrant resettlement scheme.

Of the 1,000 respondents asked between Sept. 1 and 4, fully 88 percent had heard about the lawsuit.

Only 22 percent said Hungary should comply with the ruling. Altogether 97 percent of Fidesz voters and 80 percent of Jobbik voters said the government should “fight on”. The same was true of a third each of LMP and Socialist supporters. The majority of those without party preferences would not comply with the EU’s migrant quota scheme either, Századvég said.

The Hungarian government turned to the Luxembourg-based court in December 2015 over the quota scheme, asking the ECJ to annul the European Council resolution on relocating 120,000 refugees to member states on a mandatory basis.

On Wednesday the European Court of Justice dismissed a case launched by Hungary and Slovakia challenging the legality of the EU’s migrant resettlement scheme.

As we wrote yesterday, the European commissioner for migration, home affairs and citizenship has threatened to implement the final step in the infringement procedure under way against member states refusing to take in migrants unless they change their position.
