Fidesz Collects 1.15 Million Signatures To Support PM’s Programme
Some 1.15 million signatures have been collected so far in support of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s seven-point programme to stop migration, ruling Fidesz communications director Balázs Hidvéghi said.

The people have expressed their agreement with Orbán and Fidesz in that Europe must be protected and migration must be stopped, Hidvéghi said.

Based on feedback so far, people consider it especially important that “handling migration should be taken away from Brussels bureaucrats” and returned to national governments, he added.

Proposals that no country should be forced to take in migrants and that the EU should have anti-migration leaders have also met with full agreement among supporters, Hidvéghi said.

“This is what’s at stake at the European Parliament elections on May 26,” he added.
