Századvég: 72 percent of Hungarians think the government should fight on in quota case

September 7, 2017

According to government-tied think-tank Századvég, 72 percent of Hungarians think the country should continue its fight against accepting asylum-seekers, despite a ruling by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) that upholds Hungary’s responsibility to comply with the European Union quota system, reports Századvég presented the results of its latest poll just hours after the ECJ made its ruling in a case brought by Hungary and Slovakia against the EU’s quotas.

A mere 22 percent of the population thinks Hungary should abide by the quotas, according to the poll. Századvég stresses that according to respondents, one out of three Socialist (MSZP) and Politics Can Be Different (LMP) voters think Hungary should not accept the ECJ ruling. Századvég noted that one of its earlier polls showed 77 percent of the population opposes the EU quota concept.
