We have asked the candidates of Bicske, Vámosszabadi and Debrecen, where the refugee camps are, and we asked many of the district-candidates of Budapest most importantly about how they plan to bring the refugees and the migrants closer to the local community, how refugees can have easier access to education, health care, free Hungarian courses and a human treatment by the police.
You can read our questions here and based on the answers we will get and publish, everybody will be able to decide which candidates are really willing to act for a more inclusive local community.
The Migrant Solidarity Group of Hungary (MigSzol) would like to inform the candidates who want to become mayors of the districts of Budapest, that many people who were granted the refugee status will be able to vote in the local elections on 12 October 2014.
According to the information gathered by MigSzol, many refugees who were freshly granted the refugee status received a letter from the local elections office informing them about the date of the elections and their right to vote. Unfortunately this letter was sent to them in Hungarian language, but MigSzol helped them understand what the letter informs them about, and MigSzol is promoting them their right to vote.
