Opposition activists are counting the votes cast by Hungarians in an unprecedented primary election in the country. Next April, the newly-united opposition is standing against conservative prime minister Viktor Orbán’s ruling Fidesz party in the general election, EUobserver reports.
The primary election ended on Tuesday: results on who will stand against the Fidesz candidates trickling in on Wednesday (September 29) across 106 constituencies.
The opposition’s voters also must decide on the final leading candidate who would step up against Viktor Orbán. According to the results of the primary election, Klára Dobrev MEP, wife of former Socialist prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsány, and Gergely Karácsony, mayor of Budapest, have the best chances to win the candidacy.
