Hungary to open consulates in UK

The Hungarian state will open consulates in Manchester and Edinburgh early next year, Socialist MEP István Ujhelyi announced on Sunday, citing information he had received from the Foreign Ministry.

Hungarians who live in the region and also have a registered address in Hungary will be able to cast their vote in the two cities at next spring’s general election, he added.

Hungarians living in the UK have had to travel to London to cast their ballots.
