LMP’s questions might result in referendum

Hungary’s national election committee OVB has approved ten questions proposed by green-liberal party LMP as appropriate to be subjects of national referendum, online news portal Világgazdasá reported.

The questions cover issues of Hungary’s new Labor Code and ask, for example, whether people want employers to be obligated to give reasons for the dismissal of an employee, wish to have the notice period to remain at least 30 days long or agree to set the maximum for the length of the probation period at 100 days.

Now the questions will be published in Hungary’s national gazette Magyar Közlöny and people will have 15 days to raise any objrction to them. Then, the Constitutional Court will decide whether the questions can be subjects of a referendum and if a positive decision is made, LMP will have four months to collect 200,000 subscriptions on the questions required for a referendum.
