The opinion of almost 8 million Hungarian citizens will be tested on whether they wish to legalize their siestas or not after the National Elections Committee decided the necessity of a referendum in this regard, Reuters informs on Monday.

Those proposing such a law needed 200.000 signatures in order to initiate a referendum on the theme.

The committee previously rejected a referendum proposal that suggested that beer should be free in restaurants. The reason behind the proposal was that this affects the market. Thus, Hungarian citizens are still paying for drinks.

Since the fall of the Communist regime in 1989 and the transition to democracy, Hungary proposed lots of referendums but only two of these got approved, namely those related to NATO and EU membership.
