Hungarian Prime minister Viktor Orban has delivered a huge blow to the European Union after 98 percent of the Hungarian public soundly rejected EU migrant redistribution plans.
The Hungarian referendum on the redistribution of migrants and asylum seekers by the European Union has faced an almost unanimous result among Hungarian voters. An overwhelming majority of those who cast their ballot agree with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban that Hungary should not be forced by the European Union to accept migrants via redistribution.
The victory could set in motion the Orban government’s plans to create laws that may be even more stringent toward asylum seekers who enter the country and possibly those who are residing there today. Spokesman for Orban, Zoltan Kovacs, told press in Brussels last month that he expected the result to affirm the position of the government and be used as a stepping stone to create more laws.
However, the victory could be bittersweet for the Hungarian leader as voter apathy led to a low turnout. Many of the opposition parties have told their followers and supporters to either invalidate their ballots or simply not vote at all. Breitbart London spoke to several Hungarians on the streets of Budapest who were pro-Orban but also expressed concern that the rhetoric surrounding the referendum had gone on for a long time.
Unfortunately only 43% of the electorate voted, short of the 50% required to be valid. However this is still a huge slap in the face of EU bureaucrats! Even if that missing 7% would turn out and vote in favor of immigration, the referendum would still end with AGAINST immigration votes winning in a landslide!
Orban is quite right to declare this a victory, if 95 – 98% of those who voted said “no to immigration”, it is not credible to claim that 100% of those who didn’t bother to vote supported “YES”! Would the 57% that did not vote all have voted “yes”? No chance and the EU knows that!
A government spokesman said the outcome was binding “politically and legally” but the opposition said the government did not have the support it needed.”
As a reminder, in 2003, also only 45% went to vote for the joining to the European Union. That time only 25% participation was needed for a referendum to be valid.
The EU are using every dirty trick up their sleeve to try and avoid acknowledging the fact that Hungarians have voted overwhelmingly against EU refugee policy.
