Fidesz would win 3/4 parliamentary majority in election

The ruling alliance of Fidesz and the Christian Democrats would win a 3/4 majority in parliament if elections were held this Sunday, according to a fresh poll by the Nezopont Institute.

Among decided voters, Fidesz-KDNP’s list would capture 51 percent of the vote in a general election, Nezopont said in statement, noting that the poll’s margin of error meant this could be considered identical to the 52 percent won by the ruling parties in 2022.

A united opposition would receive 26 percent of the vote, 10 percent less than in 2022, Nezopont said.

The radical opposition Mi Hazank would garner 12 percent of the vote, doubling its share from 2022. The satirical Two-Tailed Dog Party would receive 8 percent, clearing the 5 percent threshold to enter parliament.

Fidesz-KDNP’s votes would translate into 148 seats in Hungary’s 199-seat parliament, up from the current 135.

The left-wing opposition would have 30 seats, 27 less than their current 57. Meanwhile, Mi Hazank would double its number of MPs with 12 seats, making it the largest opposition group.

The Two-Tailed Dog Party would have 8 seats.

Nezopont’s phone poll was carried out between March 27 and 29 with a sample of 1,000 adults.
