Bugár criticises EU referendum campaign


Bela Bugár, leader of the co-ruling Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK), has criticised the European Union referendum campaign, run by his SMK colleague Pál Csáky.

Bugár was commenting on the two-day referendum on Slovakia joining the European Union, which ended on Saturday, narrowly exceeding a 50-percent turnout required to be valid but showing overwhelming support for entry from those voting.

However, Bugár refused to call for Csáky's removal, as others have done, saying that no action should be taken before the results have been fully analysed.
