Question for written answer

Subject: New “national consultation” by the Hungarian government

This week, the Hungarian government launched propaganda spots in the media in advance of the new “national consultation” on a so-called “Soros Plan” on migration.
- Will the Commission, six months after the Hungarian Government's 'Stop Brussels' consultation, again “make public its own response, in order to dispel misunderstandings and perhaps get the facts straight”?
- Does the Commission consider this “national consultation” will fuel xenophobia and anti-semitism, in violation of Art 2 TEU, and that it is contrary to the principle of sincere cooperation and solidarity between the Member States and the EU?
- Does the Commission consider this “national consultation” further adds to the weakening of democratic checks and balances in Hungarian society?
