Addressing a press conference, Liberal deputy leader Ádám Sermer noted that the NVB had thwarted their referendum initiatives on the subject on six previous occasions.
Sermer said that “the committee as a body cannot provide such assistance to proponents but members can”, and voiced hope that an initiative prepared this way would not be rejected.
“The job of the NVB is not to approve questions that the government likes and thwart ones that the government dislikes,” Sermer said. The committee should ensure that voters can express their opinion on important issues, he said.
