Socialists organize demo for 6 pm, today
Some 350 people said on a facebook page that they would join a demonstration in front of the National Election Bureau (NVI) for 6 pm today, after one of their politicians was only able to hand in an initiative on a referendum question on the Sunday closings law following an elderly lady, who was secured to be the first handing in a similar question by “skinheads”, according to a report by Hungarian online daily index.hu.
After Hungary’s Supreme Court Curia today rejected an earlier question on the same matter, the NVI could again receive referendum initiations on Sunday closings, and when two initiations are handed in on the same matter, the one with the earlier time stamp is to be considered, so the Socialists are out of the consideration by four seconds, index.hu says.
An elderly lady, an individual, was able to hand in her referendum initiation, coming before the Socialists, what the index.hu report says was due to “skinheads” who protected the lady. In the Facebook event the Socialists are organizing for the evening they charge Hungary’s governing party Fidesz with the move.
As of March 15 a year ago, retailers are restricted to open on Sundays by law. Ever since many referendums initiations have been handed in, but none of them ever evolved into an actual referendum, according to reports.
