Referendum - Socialists: Fidesz using vote to divert attention from corruption scandals
Ruling Fidesz is using the migrant quota referendum to divert attention from its "daily corruption scandals", the "dire state" of health care and education as well as emigration, the opposition Socialist Party said on Tuesday.
The Socialists on Tuesday again urged voters to sit out the referendum.
They said they would have preferred it if Kosa had talked about "systemic corruption, the theft of European Union funds", the alleged corruption case surrounding Fidesz MP Roland Mengyi, the residency bonds scheme or the "hopeless" state of public education.
Recent press reports have indicated that the national board of the Socialist Party on Monday launched an ethics inquiry into Moricz's case. The councillor has since said she had initiated the suspension of her membership in the party until her situation is settled.
