Mail-in votes add one more seat to Fidesz-KDNP’s 135
Under the election law, Hungarians beyond the border were eligible to vote by mail on a national party list.
Out of the 161,548 valid votes processed by NVI so far the ruling alliance was supported by 151,279, the united opposition by 7,006 and the Our Homeland party 1,705.
As a result, Fidesz-KDNP will have 136 seats in the 199-seat national assembly whereas the united opposition failed to secure the 56th mandate.
The mandates of the radical Mi Hazank (Our Homeland) party also remained unchanged, with 7 seats secured.
With NVI continuing the process of counting votes returned from abroad, the final number of mandates for the parties may change.
