Hungary to give women with 4 or more kids life tax exemption

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is a staunch opponent of the EU's migration policy; his premiership has been marked by clashes with George Soros, a billionaire who champions the global liberal agenda, resulting in his Open Society Foundations NGO being forced out of Hungary.

The Council of Europe's human rights commissioner says Hungary is facing "many interconnected human rights challenges", including legislation targeting civic groups, backsliding on women's rights and the systematic detention of asylum-seekers.

He said the new financial aid is to encourage women to have more children and reverse Hungary's shrinking population.

Legislation approved a year ago, for example, allows jail sentences for people convicted of aiding asylum-seekers.

A subsidy of 2.5 million forints (£6,821) will also be available towards the purchase of a seven-seat vehicle for families with three or more children.

The prime minister also listed some of his government's economic achievements - such as low unemployment - and vowed to fight poverty. "Those who decide in favor of immigration and migrants, no matter why they do so, are in fact creating a country with a mixed population". "For every missing child there should be one coming in and then the numbers will be fine", Orban said in his annual state of the nation address on Sunday, as cited by Reuters.

After his speech, several hundred members and supporters of Hungary's main opposition parties held an anti-Orban rally that started in Buda Castle.

The event was a protest against heavy fines the state audit office had recently imposed on several opposition parties.

Opposition leaders said the fines, which can not be challenged in Hungarian courts, were politically motivated and meant to hinder their campaigns for the European Parliament and municipal elections in Hungary later this year.
