SZÁZADVÉG: 'VAST MAJORITY' WANT CHANGE IN EU

 

Fully 81% of Hungarian respondents in a recent poll by the Századvég Foundation expressed “withering criticism” of the European Union’s leadership and dissatisfaction with the EU’s handling of migration while indicating a desire for change. Seventy percent of respondents said they were “extremely dissatisfied with the way Brussels has handled the migration crisis, the weightiest European matter of recent years,” Szazadveg’s report said on Wednesday, adding that only 26% were of the opposite view. Fully 51% of respondents who declared their intention to vote on Sunday said they supported Fidesz’s ruling alliance with the Christian Democrats.
The leftist Democratic Coalition is set to gain 11% of Hungarian votes in the EP ballot, according to Századvég. The nationalist Jobbik party is likely to receive 9%, the Socialists-Párbeszéd alliance 7%, and the Momentum Movement 6%, the think-tank found. Green LMP and radical nationalist Mi Hazánk was backed by 3%, while 7% of respondents were uncertain about which party to vote for, according to the phone survey conducted between May 10-18 with a sample of 1,000 randomly selected adults.
