Thou­sands join an­tiprez rally in Hungary

Panay News - - WORLD -

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. (
