Hungary's Anti-Immigration Leader Wins Super-Majority

• by Mike Mish Shedlock

Hungary's prime minister Viktor Orban won reelection with a two-thirds majority. He is strongly anti-immigration. With a supermajority victory, Orban may seek constitutional reforms that will not go over well with the "more Europe" crowd.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban of Hungary, who has set about transforming this former Soviet bloc member from a vibrant democracy into a semi-autocratic state under one political party's control, appeared to have won a sweeping victory in national elections on Sunday, with 93 percent of the vote counted.

By securing two-thirds of the seats in Parliament, Mr. Orban's Fidesz party — along with its ally, the Christian Democrats —— now has the power to change the Constitution and further bend the nation to his will.

Western officials view Mr. Orban's style of government as a threat to values such as the rule of law and a free press.
