Rogán told commercial TV2 that the government’s move was a symbolic gesture to all Hungarian citizens, signalling that such moves are not without consequence and must be carefully thought over.
He said MT had acted unconstitutionally, violating freedoms of opinion and speech by withdrawing funding merely for disagreeing with someone’s opinion.
He noted, however, that the government’s response is only symbolic, as mobile internet contracts account for just 0.1% of MT’s revenue. “MT will not lose too much money as a result,” Rogán said.
“It is obvious to any open-minded person that Hungary’s constitution respects women and allows their positive discrimination.
The government’s family policy also supports women in work, women finding employment “before and after giving birth,” he said.
