Outgoing Prime Minister Viktor Orban easily won the general election in Hungary on 8th April and there will retain office for another four years. His party, the Alliance of Young Democrats-Civic Union (FIDESZ-MPP), allied to the People's Christian Democratic Party (KDNP) led by Zsolt Semjen, won 48.53% of the vote and is due to take 134 of the 199 seats in the Orszaggyules, the single house in Parliament, i.e. the majority of 2/3. He again took advantage of electoral redistricting and of the tailor-made voting system. According to political analysts with this electoral system the FIDESZ-MPP would have won each of the general elections that have taken place over the last 25 years.
