Fidesz secures two - thirds victory

The largest opposition party of the outgoing parliament, Fidesz - Hungarian Civic Union will have 263 seats in the 386 - member national assembly. That gives the party the necessary majority to make fundamental changes in the country, including possible changes to the constitution, itself.

The largest opposition party of the outgoing parliament, Fidesz will have 263 seats in the 386-member national assembly. Running on a joint ballot with the small party Christian Democrats (KDNP), the center-right Fidesz already won 206 seats in the first round of April 11th and added another 57 to that in the second round of April 25th. All in all, Fidesz won 52.73% of the popular vote and all but three of the 176 seats up for grabs in individual constituencies.

The governing Socialists won 19.3% of the popular vote and had to be content with only two individual victories, both in Budapest. They will have 59 seats in the new national assembly that will feature two debutant parties: the radical Jobbik with 47 members of parliament and LMP (Politics can be different!) with 16 seats. Former Fidesz MP, Oszkar Molnar will now be an independent member of parliament.

With more than two thirds of the lawmakers behind it, Fidesz will have the necessary majority to make fundamental changes in the country, including possible changes to the constitution.

The inaugural session of the new national assembly is expected to take place Friday, May 14th.
