Some 1,023,000 people have participated so far in the government’s National Consultation survey, Csaba Dömötör, a state secretary of the Prime Minister’s Office, said on Thursday in a video on the government’s Facebook page. The robust feedback, he said, showed that the survey’s questions concerned issues “that affect all of us, and everyone has an opinion”. He said that the sanctions were supposed to bring an end to the Russia-Ukraine war but “this did not happen”. “Instead, we have received increasingly large economic storm clouds”. Energy and food prices have soared, and inflation has been stubbornly high, he said, adding that a change of direction was needed, and “if many of us speak up, we can achieve what we want together”.
