Around 100 Hungarian Slovaks have already applied for the Hungarian nationality card in one week since the beginning of 2002. Most requests came from high unemployment areas in districts where unemployment rate hits 30%. Peter Csúcz, head of Banská Bystrica regional Hungarian Coalition Party headquarters said the card "will enable citizens to find a job in Hungary for three months in one year".
