Abstract

Hungary will hold municipal elections on 12 October. Yudit Kiss writes on the governing Fidesz party, led by Viktor Orbán, which has held power since 2010. She argues that Fidesz has used its economic policies to secure its own support base over the last four years, while a reform of the constitution and tighter restrictions on the media have also entrenched its dominant electoral position. Fidesz’ strength, combined with in-fighting among opposition parties, will ensure the party is likely to once again receive a favourable result in the upcoming elections.
