LMP CALLS FOR EU TO HELP PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

 

Green opposition LMP called for domestic and European Union schemes to help people living with disabilities exercise their voting rights as well as access housing and employment. Gábor Vágó, the party’s top candidate in the upcoming European parliamentary elections, said access to mobile ballot boxes should be made easier to help people with disabilities vote on May 26. The EU should also fund housing for people with disabilities and their access to the job market, Vágó said. He insisted that the Hungarian government did not value people living with disabilities or their carers. LMP lawmaker Péter Ungár called for higher wages for special needs professionals and allowances for people taking care of an adult disabled family member in their homes.
