Big majority (98%) of Hungarians rejected migrant quotas but vote invalid

Almost all Hungarians who voted in Sunday’s referendum rejected the European Union’s migrant quotas but turnout was too low to make the poll valid, frustrating Prime Minister Viktor Orban‘s hopes of a clear victory with which to challenge Brussels. (Reuters)

“Thirteen years after a large majority of Hungarians voted at a referendum to join the European Union, today Hungarians made their voices heard again in a European issue,” Orban said in a statement in front of TV cameras in Budapest. “We have achieved an outstanding result, because we have surpassed the outcome of the accession referendum.” (Russia Today)
