Parliamentary State Secretary Csaba Dömötör has told Hungarian news agency MTI that the EU’s Home Affairs Council had made it clear again that the European Commission would not withdraw its decisions made on mandatory relocation. This means that a prolonged debate is to be expected, Mr. Dömötör said.
As regards the fact that the bill for constitutional amendment – which would have banned the relocation of non-Hungarian people to Hungary without the consent of the National Assembly – did not get the necessary two thirds of the votes, Minister of State for Government Communication Bence Tuzson has told Hungarian television channel M1 that another form of legal solution should be sought and those tools should be taken into account that safeguard security in Hungary.
“The Hungarian Government would like to have the issue of the mandatory relocation quota permanently removed from the agenda at the next EU summit”, Minister of State for Government Communication Bence Tuzson said on Hungarian M1 television’s Friday evening current affairs programme.
“The sixtieth anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and War of Independence sends the message that the Hungarians are a people of freedom, who stand up for justice even against the tide” Parliamentary State Secretary Csaba Dömötör from the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister said.
On Tuesday, Minister of State for Government Communication Bence Tuzson told a press conference that the Government will consider every recommendation relating to the constitutional amendment because it is regarded as a national issue.
Minister of State for Government Communication said that Brussels has not abandoned the idea of mandatory relocation; therefore, the action to step up against it on a European and national level is supported by the will of those 3.3 million people who said “no” to the quotas at the 2 October referendum.
Parliamentary State Secretary Csaba Dömötör has told Hungarian news agency MTI that he regrets the Hungarian left’s absence from the talks on the constitutional amendment held in Parliament on Monday. He said that this shows that the MSZP and LMP continue to make Brussels’ migration quotas a party political issue.
The Government regards the fact that publisher Mediaworks suspended the publication of the printed and online editions of newspaper Népszabadság on Saturday as a purely economic decision.
“The new unity that came about at Sunday’s quota referendum, the community of over three million people who voted No to mandatory relocation, and the Government is bound by it, which has both domestic and international tasks following the referendum”, the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister’s Parliamentary State Secretary Csaba Dömötör said.
