LMP Files Police Report On “National Consultation” Survey For Mismanagement
Green opposition LMP co-leader Bernadett Szél has submitted a report to police in connection with alleged mismanagement of public funds for the government’s “national consultation” survey about the “Soros plan”.

The government has launched a consultation and “is wasting nearly 10 billion forints” on a plan “which probably does not even exist”, spokesman Máté Kanász-Nagy said on Friday.

Szél has made an inquiry for data of public interest and requested to receive the “Soros plan” from the government but received no answer within the available timeframe.

As a result, the party is filing a lawsuit for the data. Kanász-Nagy said the consultation was a “bluff”, a part of government propaganda aimed to distract attention from real problems in the country.

In response, ruling Fidesz said that while LMP denies the existence of the “Soros plan”, it “supports and is prepared to implement it” just like “[Democratic Coalition leader Ferenc] Gyurcsány and the Socialists”.

It added that LMP MEP Tamás Meszerics voted in favour of every “pro-migrant” proposal in the European Parliament.
