Hungarian parliament narrowly rejects PM's migrant resettlement ban

Hungarian parliament narrowly rejects PM's migrant resettlement banHungary's parliament narrowly rejected a plan on Tuesday to ban the resettlement of migrants in the country proposed by Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

The proposed constitutional amendment got 131 votes in the 199-seat parliament - a majority of 65.8 percent, just short of the two-thirds majority needed to make the change. Opposition parties boycotted the vote.

Orban had said the amendment was needed to honor an October referendum, in which more than 3 million Hungarians, an overwhelming majority of those who voted, rejected EU migrant quotas. The turnout at that referendum was too low to make the result binding. - Reuters.
