Hungarian parliamentary elections this Sunday

April 7, 2018

Parliamentary elections in Hungary are held this Sunday, April 8. According to the law, passed by the currently governing parties in 2011, eligible voters will elect 199 members of the national assembly in one round: 106 of them from single-member constituencies and 93 from national lists of political parties.

Over a million people with Hungarian citizenship but no residence in Hungary are eligible to vote for candidates on the party lists only. They are allowed to vote in letter while those with residence in Hungary but staying/working abroad are not give this opportunity: they can cast their ballot either in Hungary or at embassies in foreign countries only. The electoral threshold is set at 5%, although, this is raised to 10% for coalitions of two parties and 15% for coalitions of three or more parties.
