Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A predicted calamity came to pass: copying US voter suppression methods, those who wanted to vote away from their primary residence have been restricted to a few voting booths per election district, resulting in long lines, thus partial results won't be announced until all people standing in lines voted (or left).

There are no exit polls this time. Instead, there is one analysis based on the last pre-election polls and a post-election opinion poll. Both predict that Fidesz barely retained its two-thirds parliamentary majority, and LMP (the Greens outside the opposition alliance) barely passed the 5% limit.

One thing is certain: turnout was the new second-worst since the fall of "communism", it should be a little over 60%. Thus Fidesz won the three elections with the three lowest turnouts.

One whose delusions are out of fashion.
