86 per cent of Hungarians agree with the declaration of Good Friday as a public holiday – the online quick poll by Nézőpont Institute shows.
Even more than three-quarters (78 per cent) of anti-government voters approve of the Orbán government’s 2017 decision. This also highlights that Fidesz-KDNP is able to build cross-party consensus with certain measures beyond the policies related to migration and family policy.
Half of the respondents (51 per cent) were able to tell when this day was designated as a national public holiday, while a third (31 per cent) of them believed that this year would be the first when Good Friday is a public holiday. The majority of Hungarians links the new public holiday to the Orbán government, and only 5 percent of the respondents believed that a former cabinet introduced this measure.
