HUN­GARY VOTES ON EU MI­GRANT PLAN

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BU­DA­PEST: Hun­gar­i­ans yes­ter­day be­gan vot­ing on the EU’s trou­bled refugee quota plan, in a ref­er­en­dum aimed at boost­ing Prime Min­is­ter Vik­tor Or­ban’s cam­paign to de­fend Europe against the “threat of mass mi­gra­tion”. There is lit­tle doubt that his “No” camp will win, but the poll could still end in em­bar­rass­ment if Or­ban fails to reach the re­quired 50% turnout and is deemed in­valid. The gov­ern­ment has led a fierce me­dia of­fen­sive urg­ing the elec­torate to spurn the deal which seeks to share mi­grants around the 28-mem­ber bloc via manda­tory quo­tas. – AFP
