Election 2018 – Analysts: Many opposition parties face ruin
The result of Sunday’s election in which Fidesz was on course for a two-thirds majority before all the votes were counted, will turn almost all opposition parties to ruin, the head of Századvég Foundation said.
Opposition party leaders have been tendering their resignations in succession and “this is only the start of a crisis that is likely to deepen,” Tamás Lánczi told news channel M1.
Large internecine fights are starting within the opposition parties and they “will not be able to stay on their feet after such a serious defeat”.
Nézőpont Institute leader Ágoston Samuel Mraz said the Socialists, already in trouble, had now ended up with a “huge crisis”.
The speeches that followed the announcement of the election results showed that they had not been prepared for defeat, he added.
Mraz said he expected there would be a great many conflicts in the upcoming period in areas covering European Union funds, migration and NGOs financed from abroad.
Lánczi added that voters had expressed their wish that it should be a Fidesz-led government that represents Hungary’s interests in the “great battles” that are likely to come.
