Government to consult nation on jobs, says Orban
25 May 2012
The government will launch another national consultation, this time to gauge public opinion on job creation, Prime Minister Viktor Orban told public radio on Friday.
Questions will include ones about a fair distribution of burdens, Orban told MR-1 Kossuth, referring to the special crisis taxes and the banking tax introduced in 2010.
"Three years have passed, and we have to decide whether these should be considered temporary crisis measures or whether Hungarians want them to remain permanently in the system of sharing public burdens. I will opt for the latter when filling in the form," Orban said.
The questionnaires are planned to be sent to eight million Hungarian citizens from Tuesday, Orban said. This will be the fourth such initiative, after public consultations about the new constitution, social issues and pensioners, he added.
