Hungary’s Supreme Court has upheld a decision of the National Election Office (NVB) rejecting referendum questions on Sunday shopping restrictions. The Kúria ruled in three cases, rejecting the appeals mainly on procedural grounds. The opposition Socialist Party re-submitted a referendum initiative without any changes to the NVB in July, in an effort to lift the restrictions on Sunday shopping. The Socialists said the Kúria’s latest decision was “politically biased”. Zoltán Lukács, the party’s deputy leader, said that after several other complaints, the Kúria now claimed it was not possible to submit a referendum question by way of a proxy. Lukacs said the NVB had accepted dozens of such questions submitted through proxies over the past years. The ruling Fidesz party said in reaction it was “appalling” that due to the Socialist Party’s own mistake contained in their submission to the court they were blaming the Kúria and everyone else except themselves.
