Almost all respondents to the government’s National Consultation public survey have indicated their objection to any form of mandatory distribution of illegal migrants across the European Union, the state secretary for international communication and relations said in a video published on Facebook on Friday.
Zoltán Kovács said that out of the over 1.4 million respondents, fully 1,388,227, or 99 percent, said that they approved of the government’s position on rejecting any such plans. “This is a convincing vote against,” he said.
Fully 98 percent of the respondents said that illegal migration should be prevented from further aggravating the coronavirus situation, the state secretary said. An equal proportion of respondents said that “Soros organisations” should be prevented from promoting illegal migration, he added.
Altogether 98 percent supported the government’s readiness to enter into debates with Brussels and “protect the Hungarian people’s position” on other subjects, Kovács said.
