Fully 90.8 percent of ethnic Hungarians with dual Romanian-Hungarian citizenship have expressed support for Hungary’s ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance, new portal Maszol.ro said on Monday.
Referring to the survey conducted by SoDiSo Research for the Eurotrans Foundation in late January and early February, the portal said the results were essentially unchanged from four years ago.
Hungary’s united opposition would garner 1.9 percent of the votes of Romanian Hungarians in the April 3 election,
the portal said, adding that 7.3 percent of the participants were undecided.
The survey found that only 61.8 percent of those asked had heard about Péter Márki-Zay, prime ministerial candidate of the united opposition,
and of those 54.2 percent had a negative opinion of him.
The poll’s sample was of 1,309 randomly selected adults.
The Hungarian parliamentary elections are held on 3 April. Hungarian citizens in Romania who are registered to vote can vote by post.
The postal packages were delivered last week.
Hungarian citizens who have a permanent address in Hungary but are in Romania on election day can vote on 3 April at one of the consulates general, provided they have re-registered by 25 March.
