Hungarian elections: Right right out in front as left left standing

The ruling centre-right Fidesz party has a good chance of winning a second consecutive two-thirds majority at the parliamentary election on 6 April, according to the leaders of the major opinion research institutes. They came to this conclusion at their professional convention, organised by the Foundation for Political History in Budapest last week, basing their conclusions on the results of recent opinion polls.

Medián and Ipsos agreed that Fidesz will be able to reach an overwhelming majority in the new legislation period. As Medián Opinion Research Institute leader

Endre Hann put it, “based on the current surveys” a two-thirds majority for Fidesz is “sure”.
