A referendum on introducing direct elections for the Presidency was held in Hungary on 29 July 1990.[1] Although the proposal was supported by 85.9% of voters, turnout was just 14%, resulting in the referendum being declared invalid.[2] As a result, the President continued to be elected by the National Assembly.
