Hungary draws criticism over refugee referendum
The Hungarian government led by Prime Minister Viktor Orban has been under the spotlight recently over its controversial approach to migration during the last year.
Hungary will hold a referendum on Sunday over European Union refugee quotas. The referendum is widely seen as the second anti-EU vote after June's seismic decision by British voters to leave the bloc.
Sunday's referendum will ask Hungarians: "Do you want the European Union to be able to mandate the obligatory resettlement of non-Hungarian citizens into Hungary even without the approval of the National Assembly?"
