Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is planning to send a letter to ethnic Hungarians in neighboring countries to remind them to cast their ballots in the general election next spring, the Prime Minister’s Office announced.
In the past few years, more than 1.1 million ethnic Hungarians abroad have taken advantage of the new naturalization laws and been granted dual citizenship, according to Parliamentary State Secretary Csaba Dömötör. He said that these Hungarian communities can now take part in making key decisions and expressing their opinions through Parliamentary elections.
However, they will have to register in advance to be able to take part in the elections.
In his letter, expected to be sent in the next few weeks, the Prime Minister will emphasize that “we have entered an age of danger, in which only a nation that is capable of unity will succeed.”
