1. 98% voting people in Hungarian referendum on quotas refused the idea to distribute migrants to EU countries.
2. Hungarians changed constitution where they prohibited accepting migrants by based on an outside decision.
Orban commented it by these words: "Nobody from outside will decide who will live in our country."
This is an unprecedented attempt to protect a country from Brussels arrogancy.

Given that it was invalid poll or referendum due to the lack of participation it really doesn't matter one way or the other. Really embarrassing for Orban though.

Its certainly an unprecedented attempt. Its just a shame it kinda failed :) The turnout wasn't high enough to make the referendum count.

I'm sure the 98% will give Orban some leverage but not nearly as much as he had hoped.

1. as mentioned it was an invalid referendum (btw also illegal per the Hungarian laws but the rule of law is long gone in Hungary so it doesn't really matter, wouldn't have consequence). Of course it had its use, it was preceded by the longest and most expensive campaign ever made in Hungary. at least 50 million euros were spent on the anti-migrant campaign, but we can be sure that money went to the right pockets close to the regime...

2. the constitution hasn't been changed yet, not even the proposed draft is known, what little is leaked so far, it seems it will be a meaningless blabla that ultimately won't go against the current EU rules. but then again it is still isn't known what will be the final change (it will be the 7th change of our new constitution since it was originally accepted in 2011)

it served its purpose, 50 million euros tax money went to private pockets and for more than a year it dominated everything in the internal political communication. it could also serve as a test for mobilization to the next parliamental election in 2018.

All the same I'm of the opinion that every country has to decide whom it invites and whom it turns away. It is called freedom and independence. The best help for emigrants would be not destroying their homeland.

Don't forget homophobic! All of us Easterners are just as homophobic as racist, if not more ...

Small advice: avoid purple clothes while you'll be staying in Ljubljana. ;)

You are not enough phobic I am afraid because your country is situated west from us. We are the ones with the most excellent sense of phobias, xeno-, homo-, arachno- everything we have, because we are the true easterners.
