Press: Orbán Announces New ‘National Consultation’ Survey
MTI-Hungary Today 2020.02.13.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has announced plans for a new “national consultation” survey partly to gauge public opinion on court rulings for compensation payments to prisoners because “for certain activist groups the rights of violent criminals have become more important than the rights of law-abiding citizens,” the online edition of pro-government daily Magyar Nemzet said on Wednesday.
The prime minister held a speech behind closed doors at a group meeting of the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats group in Balatonfüred, the portal said. He briefed lawmakers about the tasks facing the cabinet and the party group, it added.
Orbán also said that during the past ten years, the cabinet had repeatedly asked people’s opinions in important issues and “joint decisions have demonstrated the power of national consensus”, magyarnemzet.hu reported.
