lass=”” >Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán says he expects at least 3 other European nations, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia to follow Hungary’s October referendum to reject the EU’s migrant quotas.
“If the Hungarian referendum in October proves to be successful, that might lead to a tsunami of referendums across Europe and will crack the EU even more,” said Orbán.
On Oct. 2, as many as 5 million Hungarians are expected to vote on the question:
“Do you want the European Union to be entitled to prescribe the mandatory settlement of non-Hungarian citizens in Hungary without the consent of parliament?”
Orbán’s political party, Fidesz considers the referendum to be a
“… matter of life and death as the future of Hungary is at stake.”
Hungarian politicians have come to a consensus that the EU bureaucrats in Brussels have overstepped their mandate and have little respect for the sovereignty of its member nations and the will of their people.
Orbán believes the entire EU project is at a crossroads. It either needs a drastic power shift back to the people, or its member nations will fall like dominos.
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.
