DK Seeks to Prevent Dual Citizens from Voting in More than One Country

The leftist opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) has appealed to the European Commission to take measures to prevent people holding dual citizenship from casting their ballot in more than one country.
Zsolt Gréczy, spokesman for DK’s parliamentary group, told a press conference on Monday that Hungary’s electoral system “fails to ensure the confidentiality of votes cast by mail and there is a risk that dual citizens living in (other) EU member states could cast a ballot in both countries”.
On another subject, Gréczy said that media figure Róbert Puzsér, who is running as an independent candidate for Budapest mayor, is in fact “(ruling) Fidesz’s nominee” and “seeks to divide the opposition”. The opposition should jointly field a candidate for the post, he said.
