Decision 3/2020(II.25.) OGY of the National Assembly
on the European Citizens' Initiative "Cohesion Policy on the Equality of Regions and the Sustainability of Regional Cultures"
- The National Assembly welcomes the European Citizens' Initiative "Cohesion Policy for the Equality of Regions and the Sustainability of Regional Cultures" launched by the Szekler National Council, which argues that the European Union's cohesion policy should pay special attention to regions with national, ethnic, cultural, religious and linguistic particularities that distinguish them from the surrounding regions.
- The National Assembly calls on Hungarians living in Hungary and abroad to support the citizens' initiative with as many signatures as possible via the website nemzetiregiok.eu
- The National Assembly is convinced that the only way to prevent these regions, including geographical areas without administrative powers, from lagging behind, is by ensuring their equal access to the Structural Funds, as well as all other EU funds, resources and programs, to promote the preservation of their particular characteristics and their regional identity.
- This Decision shall enter into force on the day following that of its publication.
Kövér László, President of the National Assembly
