Demo in front of MPʼs house approved

History

Péter Juhász, MP of opposition party Együtt (Together), got the green light from the Hungarian police for his proposed demonstration in front of his own house, after the police rejected his application to hold a similar demonstration in front of the house of Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, Juhász said today on his Facebook page.

“The good news is that I am allowed to hold a demonstration in front of my own house! And in front of yours. And in front of [Hungarian President János] Áder’s. Just not in front of Orbán’s,” Juhász wrote on his Facebook page.

Originally, Juhász was planning to hold a demonstration consisting of 20 people, which was intended to be more of a press conference and would have been followed by Juhász dropping a letter into Orbán’s mailbox. The police said he could not hold the demonstration because “it would infringe on the rights and freedoms of others.”

The demo is scheduled for tomorrow morning.
