BUDAPEST - Hungarians overwhelmingly rejected the European Union's scheme for migrant quotas at a referendum on Sunday with 94.8 percent of votes counted, data on the website of the National Election Office showed.

It said 98.2 percent of those who cast a valid vote rejected the quotas, but the vote was expected to be invalid as the turnout was less than the 50 percent required.
