parliamentary elections in Hungary

Yesterday, the first round of parliamentary elections began. This election poses a close race between MSZP (Ferenc Gyurcsany, 44, left, Socialists currently in power) and FIDESZ (Viktor Orban, 42, center-right, “Young Democrats” formerly in power).

This is the fifth general election since the return to democracy in 1990, and both major parties have some big ideas for Hungary.
