Orbán or Not Orbán

Hungary Faces a Binary Choice in Its Parliamentary Elections

On October 17, the usually fragmented Hungarian opposition elected a joint candidate for prime minister – the first step in its bid to defeat Fidesz, the ruling party of Viktor Orbán. By uniting behind Péter Márki-Zay, as well as other joint candidates for the April 2022 parliamentary elections, the opposition parties are turning the vote into a binary choice. The election could go either way, but one thing is certain: the EU will have to deal with the result of a much tougher and more polarized electoral race than ever before.
