About the election

The ruling Hungarian Civic Union-Christian Democratic People's Party (FIDESZ-KDNP), led by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, once again retained the required two-thirds majority in the 199-member National Assembly, winning a total of 135 seats. United for Hungary, a six-party opposition coalition (see note 1), led by Mr. Péter Márki-Zay of the Dialogue for Hungary (Párbeszéd, see note 2), took a total of 57 seats (see note 3). On 16 May, the National Assembly elected Mr. Orbán as the Prime Minister for a fourth consecutive term and the fifth time in his career.

The 2022 elections followed the election of the country’s first-ever woman President, Ms. Katalin Novák, in March 2022 (see note 4). They were held against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine, which had begun in February. Prime Minister Orbán condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine but said he did not agree with tough sanctions against Moscow. The elections were held in parallel with a referendum on the legislation “on taking more severe action against paedophile offenders and amending certain Acts for the protection of children”, passed by parliament in 2021.

Note 1:

The coalition comprised the Democratic Coalition (15 seats), the Movement for a Better Hungary (Jobbik, 10 seats), the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP, 10 seats), Momentum (10 seats), Dialogue for Hungary (Párbeszéd, 6 seats) and Hungary’s Green Party (LMP, 5 seats).

Note 2:

After the elections, Mr. Márki-Zay chose to retain the mayoralty of Hódmezővásárhely and was not sworn into the parliament.

Note 3:

The opposition coalition initially took 57 seats but one member elected on the Momentum ticket was sworn in as an independent. It consequently held 56 seats in the new legislature.

Note 4:

Ms. Novák, a former vice-president of FIDESZ, was elected by the outgoing National Assembly on 10 March 2022 to succeed Mr. János Áder, co-founder of Fidesz, who was due to stand down on 9 May after serving two consecutive terms in office.
