Hungarian voters will be called upon to decide whether policies that prioritize national sovereignty, family tax cuts, Christian traditions, opposition to immigrants and sexual minorities must continue, or whether political reorganization is needed as opposition denounces the erosion of democracy. and the rule of law.

Hungarian President Janos Ader has decided that the parliamentary election will take place on April 3, the same day as the referendum proposed by the ruling party, Fidesz, for the approval of the law adopted by Parliament in June 2021, which prohibits propaganda in favor of sexual minorities. .

According to Reuters, the Fidesz party and the alliance of opposition parties are close to equality in opinion polls. The opposition has created a united electoral bloc, consisting of, among others, the Socialist Party, the Democratic Coalition, the Liberal Party and the Jobbik movement. The opposition coalition is led by Peter Marki-Zay, a conservative Catholic politician who became mayor of Hodmezovasarhely in 2018. “Oligarchs close to the government have amassed incredible fortunes, and Fidesz politicians are writing the laws at will, while millions of citizens have humiliating salaries,” said Peter Marki-Zay.

“We’ll be there on April 3rd”, Prime Minister Viktor Orban reacted. The right-wing government in Budapest has just adopted a series of tax facilities for families and young people, as well as an increase in pensions and the minimum wage.
