President János Áder has set April 3 as the date of Hungary’s 2022 general election.
In a statement released by the Office of the President of the Republic, Áder said (the statement in full):
“Thirty-two years ago, as a result of the first free elections, Hungary became an independent, democratic country. I express my thanks to all who played a role in rebuilding the nation.
“This year, for the ninth time, Hungarian citizens with voting rights will be free to decide whom they will entrust with the management of our common affairs.
“Hungary’s Fundamental Law and the Electoral Procedure Act contain clear provisions on the date by which the President of the Republic may set a general election of the members of parliament.
“Based on this statutory mandate, I have set the date of the general election of members of parliament for April 3, 2022, the earliest possible date.”
