Hungary to hold general election on April 3
Hungary's President Janos Ader has set April 3 as the date for the country's 2022 general election, News.Az reports citing Xinhua.
In the previous election held in 2018, Prime Minister Viktor Orban's Fidesz party and its coalition partner Christian Democratic People's Party (KDNP) won 49.27 percent of the vote, which translated into 133 seats in the country's 199-seat unicameral Parliament.
The country's six major opposition parties - the Democratic Coalition (DK), Jobbik, LMP - Hungary's Green Party, Momentum Movement, Hungarian Socialist Party, and Dialogue for Hungary - have decided to unite before the election to maximize their chances to win.
The opposition alliance held primary elections last October to pick Orban's challenger.
