Anti-Soros Campaign Gives Viktor Orban's Party A Supermajority In Hungary

Kingsley

Now, with two-thirds of the sits in Hungary's parliament held by his party, he can effectively rewrite the country's constitution how he likes.

Hungary's firebrand nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban claimed a "historic victory" Sunday as his right-wing party took a thumping lead in the country's key parliamentary election. "We have the chance to defend Hungary". "A great battle is behind us".

Orban late Sunday celebrated what he called a "decisive victory".

Provisional results in the Hungarian vote are that Fidesz won a two-thirds majority in parliament, 133 out of 199 seats, with far-right Jobbik a distant second with about 20 per cent, about 26 seats, and the socialists, 12 per cent, about 20 seats, with two other parties also expected to cross the threshold. "There were no small victories for the opposition".

Orban won re-election after campaigning on a platform that openly demonized migrants to Europe.

Mr Orban campaigned heavily on his unyielding anti-migration policies.

Hungary's nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Tuesday (Apr 10) that his resounding election win, challenged by the opposition, shows that voters want to stop USA billionaire philanthropist George Soros interfering in the country.

At a news conference with global media two days after cruising to his third straight term, Orban said his government had already drawn up a "Stop Soros" package of legislation.

The new laws could make it hard for groups working with asylum-seekers to continue their activities in Hungary.

Poland's deputy foreign minister and envoy to the European Union, Konrad Szymanski, described Orban's victory "a confirmation of Central Europe's emancipation policy". The report noted the overlap between government ads and Fidesz ads that "blurred the line between state and party" and found that state media "clearly favored" the government. The headlines included "Migrant gangs fought in England", "They can't stand it anymore in Sweden: They've had enough of migrants", and "A migrant in underpants beat a German retiree half to death".

Critics charge Orban with weakening the democratic system of checks and balances, enriching a new oligarch class of cronies with the help of funds from the European Union and greatly concentrating power.
