Thousands join antiprez rally in Hungary
BUDAPEST – Tens of thousands of people have demonstrated in Budapest against the re-elected right-wing government of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
Opponents of Orban flooded the capital on Saturday to protest at what they say is an unfair electoral system.
A similar number of people attended a pro- Orban demonstration last month.
The protests come just six days after the governing Fidesz party won two-thirds of the parliamentary seats with half of the national vote.
Orban is a strong Eurosceptic who campaigned on an anti-immigration platform.
The march was organized through a Facebook group called “We are the majority.”
Following the large turn- out for Saturday’s rally, the organizers have called for a further demonstration next weekend. (
