On Sunday, more than 1.6 million Hungarians cast invalid votes to reject the government's manipulative and fear-mongering referendum. The invalidity of the referendum shows that the majority of Hungarians do not support the government's exclusionary policies. Five days after the miserable failure of the government's anti-LGBTQI referendum, the National Election Committee (NEC) suddenly realized that the months-long campaign "defeats the constitutional purpose of the exercise of power."
