The postal service, in the week ending June 1, began delivering millions of letters in the name of Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán, asking voters for their opinions on a wide range of policy issues. It is the latest round of the “National Consultation” that the government says it will use as a guide in its policymaking. This time the theme is job creation and all questions are related to the economy.
Some media – including financial daily Világgazdaság and weekly news magazine HVG – suggested that the government has already made up its mind over the issues touched on in the questionnaire.
Comments posted on the website of left-liberal newspapers and other internet forums suggested that critics are legion. As so often in cyberspace, mockery was rife.
