The must-have newsletter about Hungary



Addressing an international press conference, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that Hungary was the only country in Europe not to have had early elections since 1990, adding that “Hungary is first in terms of stability and predictability”. He said the outcome of the vote was even more valuable in light of the fact that “Brussels and the liberal world wanted to see a leftist government”. That is why, he said, the Hungarian government had not been able to negotiate agreements with the EU as early as the summer of 2021, because “the EU wanted a change of government and would not give [Hungary] money before the elections”. He added that “the goal now is the same with Poland” where “Brussels also wants to see a leftist government”.
