Professor Miklós Haraszti: The Hungarian Election
24. april 2018 kl. 17.00 - 18.30 CEST
On April 8th 2018, Hungary held its general election and the results are clear: Viktor Orbán will get a 4th term as Prime Minister of Hungary. This will be Orbán’s 3rd consecutive term as Prime Minister and his Fidesz party will be governing with 134 out of 199 seats in the Hungarian Parliament.
Orbán and his Fidesz party have won the election in a landslide, and they are left with maximum power with the ability to single-handedly change any law, including Hungary’s constitution. Many Eurosceptic parties across the continent have congratulated Orbán on his victory and called it ‘a bad day for the EU, a good day for Europe’ (Beatrix von Storch, AfD). But how will Victor Orbán govern after this election? Will he make new dramatic changes to Hungary’s democratic institutions? How should we understand the results of the election, and which prospects for Hungarian democracy and Europe does it leave us with?
We are proud to present Miklós Haraszti, former OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, currently Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Belarus, and Fellow of Central European University’s Center for European Neighborhood Studies. He will enlighten us on the current political situation in Hungary. After Professor Haraszti’s talk, there will be time for a Q&A.
