LMP submits new referendum question to scrap strategic construction projects

Opposition LMP has submitted another referendum question in an effort to prevent the government from assigning certain construction project a status of strategic importance, LMP deputy group leader Antal Csardi told a press conference on Friday.

Last year, the National Election Committee thwarted a referendum proposal submitted by LMP, which was aimed at scrapping a law under which key government projects could be expedited. The party appealed against the committee decision to the supreme court, which decided in LMP’s favour and scrapped the committee ruling.

Ruling Fidesz then scrapped the contested law, but “packed practically all its stipulations” into another bill aimed to change the construction law, Csardi said, adding that his party’s aim was to remove all proposed stipulations aimed to expedite such government projects.
