Official slams Brussels ‘plan to enfranchise migrants’

Under section 7 of the European Union's integration and inclusion action plan, immigrants "should be given voting rights", and they should be involved in political decision making, foreign affairs State Secretary Tamas Menczer said in a video published on Facebook on Saturday.

The Hungarian government’s position is that “the fate of Hungarians should be determined by Hungarians only”, he said adding that such decisions “must not be made by Brussels or migrants”.

Earlier in the week, Menczer slammed other components of the action plan, and voiced the government’s position that “migration should not be managed but stemmed, while aid should be provided where the problems arise”.
