The KTK’s statement comes after the National Election Office (NVI) on Monday said it had received requests for the government’s referendum questions to be reviewed by a court.
The KTK said the government would stand firm in its support for the referendum, adding that there was a real danger that Hungary’s leftist opposition wanted to provide a platform to “LGBTQ propaganda”.
Hungary will be the first country in Europe where the people will get to decide who should have a say in the sex education of children, the KTK said.
According to press reports, the opposition Momentum Movement, the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (TASZ) and the satirical Two-Tailed Dog party have all challenged the government’s referendum initiative.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced last month that the government had decided to initiate a referendum with a view to defending Hungary’s new child protection law from “attacks” by Brussels.
