Orban made an announcement at his victory rally late in the day.
Kronen Zeitung reported:
A long election day in Hungary has given the ruling right-wing Fidesz of Prime Minister Viktor Orban the third consecutive election victory. Only shortly before 23 o’clock a preliminary result could be announced, after an unexpected onslaught on the polling stations had taken place. After counting around 96 percent of the votes cast Orbans party leads the list of parties clearly with 48.5 percent of the vote. To the lamentations of Roxette’s “Listen To Your Heart” and “Viktor, Viktor!” Calls Orban went to his voters to make his victory speech. This began the Prime Minister with the words: “We won!”
Victor Orban’s party has pretty much just one message to the electorate… pic.twitter.com/NbpU6rNO9s
