Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban secured a third term when his anti-migration Fidesz party won a supermajority in Sunday’s parliamentary elections. With nearly 99 percent of the votes counted, Fidesz holds 134 of 199 parliamentary seats. The supermajority win will allow the ruling bloc to make constitutional changes. “We created the opportunity for ourselves to defend Hungary,” Orban told supporters after his victory. “A great battle is behind us. We achieved a decisive victory.” The right-wing nationalist Jobbik party came in second, followed by the Socialist-led coalition.
