Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There was such an initiative last year, right after parliament adopted the new constitution. However, referendum proposals have to go through a check by the Election Commission, which was taken over by Fidesz. The referendum proposal was rejected with a twisted legal argument, interpreting the new Constitution as an amendment. The issue went on to the Constitutional Court (now also Fidesz-controlled), which did nothing until December, then (as written in the diary) all on-going procedures were quashed. (There have been several other referendum initiatives against new laws, most of them were also rejected by the Election Commission.)
