Budapest, September 23 (MTI) – The opposition Socialists called for a common European migrant system on Wednesday and the PM party demanded that the government should treat migrants more humanely and draft programmes to help them get accommodated to the new environment.
Tobias said after participating in a meeting of European Union left-wing party group leaders ahead of the European Council extraordinary meeting in Brussels that the common EU asylum system should cover organising registration, the assessment of asylum applications and the distribution and financing of refugees.
He said the Socialists had submitted a draft resolution to parliament that outlines an action plan and proposes that Hungary should initiate suspending the Dublin regulations and developing an assessment system for temporary asylum applications.
Spokesman of the PM party Bence Tordai said that the government should elaborate programmes promoting the integration of asylum seekers. All the more so because under the EU interior ministers’ Tuesday agreement Hungary will be expected to take in at least 1,000 refugees annually. The agreement indicates that the Hungarian government is forced to give up its “spectacularly failed unorthodox policies”, he added. The PM party expects the cabinet to “normalise” relations with neighbouring states and take a proactive approach to resolving the Syrian, especially by supporting refugee camps in Turkey.
