The opponent of the DK battery factory in Debrecen considers referendums harmful
The LMP, Momentum and Mi Hazánk were also formed against the Chinese battery factory planned for Debrecen, but the representative of the Democratic Coalition in Debrecen, Zoltán Varga, told ATV that he does not support them:
“Those who hold a referendum here in the city of Debrecen are simply doing nothing but harm to this cause as a political party. After all, we know very well that if this referendum initiative passes, this factory will already be built in abundance.”
True, a Debreciner already asked him in the middle of August last year Vargá, who campaigned on the topic, whether they were planning a referendum against the CATL factory, but the DK representative only said that Fidesz had made the institution of the referendum impossible, and then promised that the DK would do everything to ensure that the locals see clearly in them, experts will be asked to organize a serious conference, they will ask for all documents about the investment, including the impact studies, but he could not say whether they would initiate a referendum. The party also has a shadow minister for environmental protection, who is also the president of the Nagy Fal Hungarian-Chinese Friendship Association, but so far Lajos Oláh has not exposed himself in the battery case either.
It is Balázs Faluvégi, an expert in society and environmentally conscious investments He talks about it to RTLthat the Chinese CATL can be used for the recently handed over Thuringia factory, the factory planned for Debrecen would produce seven times more, be three times larger, and employ three and a half times as many people. And this involves several risks.
