Orban wins fourth consecutive term as Hungary’s prime minister
Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban declared victory in Sunday’s national elections, claiming a fourth consecutive term in office.
Preliminary results showed his party led over opposition leader Péter Márki-Zay to control 135 seats of the 199-seat Parliament.
In his victory speech, Orbán called Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy one of the “opponents” he had to overcome during the campaign.
Orbán singled out Zelenskyy as part of “overwhelming force” that his party had defeated: “the left at home, the international left, Brussels bureaucrats, the Soros empire with all its money, the international mainstream media, and in the end, even the Ukrainian president." pic.twitter.com/9GSpEq1OPt
