Landslide Triumph as Anti-Globalist, Anti-Soros Orban Wins Third Term in Hungary

Landslide Triumph as Anti-Globalist, Anti-Soros Orban Wins Third Term in Hungary, by Jack Montgomery.

Hungary’s conservative-populist premier Viktor Orbán has won a third term in office in a landslide election victory.

With the votes counted, Europe Elects is sharing stats which show Fidesz, the party founded by Prime Minister Orbán while he was a young anti-Communist dissident, has won not merely a decisive majority but an outright super-majority, along with minor allied parties — allowing changes to the national constitution. …

From Feb 2017

Orbán is best known in the United States for his robust response to the migrant crisis, rapidly erecting and systematically strengthening a southern border wall which cut illegal immigration by over 99 per cent, while Western European countries like Germany and Sweden invited all comers with disastrous results.
