NO from Hungary to the Olympic referendum

Hungary’s Supreme Court blocked a proposed referendum on Budapest’s 2024 Olympic bid and the city’s bid runs on the final ballot. The Hungarian Olympic Committee nominated Budapest to bid for the 2024 Olympic Games last September and the first phase of bid documents are due into the International Olympic Committee on February 17.

Opponents had been hoping to put the Olympic bid to a public vote by collecting 140,000 signatures that would have forced a referendum as early as the spring. Budapest is competing with Los Angeles, Paris and Rome in order to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games when the IOC chooses in September 2017.
