Hungary’s right-wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban has claimed a landslide victory in Sunday’s general election.
The 54-year-old will serve a third consecutive term in office, with his party Fidesz projected to keep its key two-thirds majority in parliament.
Fidesz won almost half of the vote, with 93% of ballots counted, Hungary’s national election office said.
Mr Orban is a strong Eurosceptic who campaigned on an anti-immigration platform.
In a speech to supporters on Sunday night, Mr Orban said his victory gave Hungarians “the opportunity to defend themselves and to defend Hungary”.
Leaders of the second and third-placed parties have resigned in light of the result.
In 2015, Hungary built a fence along its borders with Serbia and Croatia to stop illegal migrants.
Mr Orban has promised to cut income taxes and pass pro-growth economic policies.Please subscribe to our newsletter
