Hungary to hold referendum on EU migrant plan

Hungary will hold a referendum on October 2 over the EU’s plan to relocate migrants among member states. Budapest says the plan violates its national sovereignty and poses a threat to its security. The country’s right-wing government initially voted against the EU’s plan to share some 160,000 migrants around the 28-nation bloc, which was nonetheless approved by a majority of member states. Hungary has joined Slovakia in filing a legal challenge against the scheme, which was meant to ease pressure on Greece and Italy, the main entry points for migrants.
