There are also problems
The first hours of Sunday’s parliamentary elections in Hungary were marked by minor incidents. It was the nausea of two participants and the relocation of one polling station due to technical problems, informs the TASR rapporteur in Budapest, referring to the news server index.hu.
In Békéscsaba, South Hungary, a member of the election commission, who was taken away by rescuers, was ill. However, the event did not affect the conduct of the elections, which continued properly.
In the town of Kiskunfélegyháza in the Bács-Kiskun county, nausea in the area reserved for voting came to a voter who fell away and injured his head. Rescuers treated him on the spot and the vote continued in this case.
In XIV. in the Budapest district they had to move a polling station in which the lighting was not suitable and it was not possible to solve this problem because the building operator was not available.
Orbán alebo Márki-Zay
The leader of the united Hungarian opposition, the conservative Péter Márki-Zay, called on citizens to take an active part in the ongoing parliamentary elections on Sunday. TASR took over the report from the DPA.
In a video speech released on Facebook this Sunday, Mark-Zay called on voters not to vote for Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government.
“Let’s choose a better world, happy Hungary,” he said in a video shot in the town of Hódmezővásárhely in the southeast of Hungary, where he has been mayor since 2018.
The opposition leader after the dismissal in the constituency of the primary school on Náměstí sv. Štefan, accompanied by his family, told reporters that there is no democracy in Hungary and the elections are not entirely fair, but only in this way is it possible to overthrow the most corrupt government in Hungarian’s 1000-year history.
Who from whom
According to the news server mfor.hu Márki-Zay on the issue of the government’s first steps in the opposition’s victory, he said that Hungary would join the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) “so that all criminals go to prison and so that corruption in Hungary does not go unnoticed”.
DPA recalled that Marki-Zay leads an alliance of six opposition entities. This grouping of left, green, liberal and right-wing conservative parties wants to optimize its chances of defeating Orbán.
Opinion polls recently indicated that Orbán’s right-wing nationalist party, Fidesz, is leading the opposition alliance by only a few percentage points, the DPA added.
