Orbán to ask ethnic kin abroad to participate in Hungary general election
Csaba Domotor noted that December 5, 2004 was a “hardly forgettable trauma” in Hungary’s policy for Hungarian communities abroad, referring to a referendum that rejected the grating of citizenship to ethnic Hungarians abroad.
The state secretary noted that Hungarian parliament had since then passed a law on introducing dual citizenship, and over 1.1 million Hungarians abroad had taken the opportunity.
“Hungarians abroad are now entitled to participate in making decisions on our future, and express their views during the general election,” he said.
The prime minister will now ask them to take part in common decision making and participate in the vote, Domotor said.
