LMP’s deputy group leader told the demonstration held in front of the NVB headquarters in central Budapest that the election committee had “fulfilled ruling Fidesz’s political will” when it rejected the party’s referendum initiative.
“They want to turn Hungary into a battery-plant colony despite the fact that the majority of people oppose such a policy,” Máté Kanász-Nagy said.
He accused Fidesz of “selling Hungary’s treasured natural resources to the profit-hungry multinationals, putting the country at the mercy of eastern and western capitalists even more”.
András Suszter, an activist of the Protect the Future (Védegylet) green NGO, said that together with LMP they had filed a lawsuit for annulling the construction permit of a battery plant in Debrecen, in eastern Hungary.
