MORE THAN 1.4 MILLION PEOPLE RETURN NATIONAL CONSULTATION QUESTIONNAIRE

 

More than 1.4 million citizens have filled in the National Consultation questionnaire, a government official said. Fully 83% of the 1.423 million citizens who returned the questionnaire did so by post, while 17% filled it in online, Csaba Dömötör, parliamentary secretary of the Prime Minister’s Office, told a news conference. So far, an overwhelming majority of respondents agreed with proposals on such measures as raising the minimum wage to 200,000 forints, refunding a portion of personal income tax to parents raising children, and providing constitutional protections for family benefits. The results of the public survey will be presented on each topic over the next few days before the detailed results are published on the government’s website, and the cabinet will then make decisions accordingly.
