VIENNA, October 2. /TASS/. 23 international observers will monitor voting at the referendum in Hungary on the EU quotas for hosting refugees, the Hungarian National Election Commission said on SundaY.
"23 observers are registered for the Sunday referendum," the Commission said in a statement.
Twelve observers represent embassies of Mongolia, Denmark, the UK, the U.S. and the Netherlands. Another eleven are from national election commissions of Romania, South Korea and Latvia.
Hungarians are to give an answer to the question: "Do you want to allow the European Union to decide moving persons, who are not Hungarian citizens, into Hungary without consent from the National Assembly (Parliament)?"
The poll results will be considered valid if the turnout is not less than 50%. Results of surveys, conducted by the national television, show almost 70% of Hungarians want to vote against the EU quotas. The referendum results would not have any legal force at the EU, but the government may demand changes made to the Lisbon Treaty - to exclude from it the provisions, which regulate migration.
