Orbán encourages Hungarian citizens in neighboring countries to vote next year

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has sent a letter to Hungarians with dual citizenship outside of the country’s borders to encourage them to vote in next year’s elections, reports 24.hu, which has a copy of one of the letters. In the letter, Orbán reminds these voters that it was his government that granted them dual citizenship seven years ago.

Index points out that in the 2014 elections, 95% of the eligible votes cast by Hungarians abroad went to Orbán’s Fidesz, so it is in the party’s interest that as many of them vote as possible.
