The Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians (VMSZ) scored a “historic success” at the elections in Serbia over the weekend, the state secretary in charge of ethnic Hungarian communities abroad said. VMSZ scored better results on Sunday than at any previous elections, Árpád János Potápi said. The party garnered nearly 70,000 votes and rather than the previous four, it is expected to have nine representatives in the republic’s parliament, he added. The 2011 census showed that some 250,000 ethnic Hungarians live in Vojvodina. Potápi congratulated VMSZ which he said had been strengthened by its leader István Pásztor in recent years, making it into a political party that can unite all ethnic Hungarians in Vojvodina.
