Novak: People ‘vote for family, raising children’

People "support the family and raising children", the office of President Katalin Novak said citing answers to one of ten questions Novak posted on social media platform X on Thursday.

Following a meeting with X owner Elon Musk last September, with demographic problems high on its agenda, Novak launched her Humanity Tuesdays survey, posing a question each week in an effort to focus attention on those problems.

According to the presidential office’s statement, the most popular question in the survey was read by 42 million people, while 62 percent of those that answsered thought that people raising children “cannot suffer an economic disadvantage”.

Fully 70.7 percent of respondents said they had plans to start a family, while 87 percent urged making jobs family-friendly. Eighty-six percent also supported Novak’s position that women should be helped have a family and a career at the same time. Fifty-nine percent of respondents said they would like to have three or more children, “which means that more children are desired than are actually born,” the statement said. Over 86 percent of the respondents said they agreed with a remark by Novak, who said “overpopulation is not the problem … the family does not cause but will resolve climate change.”
