In a separate poll also conducted in the last week of March, WWF Hungary conducted a nationwide, representative online survey to find out what Hungarians want from their decision-makers on environmental issues.
Their results showed that over 90% of internet users want the current government to prioritize protecting nature and the climate, and a large majority, regardless of place of residence, would like to see a separate ministry focusing on the environment to be set up. [Telex]
