Hungary Holds Parliamentary Elections
Hungary is holding parliamentary elections on Sunday, with incumbent Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz party projected to win.
Fidesz is expected to win between 45 and 50% of the vote, according to polls published by the BBC News.
The centre-left coalition, consisting of five left-wing and centrist groups led by Attila Mesterhazy and his Socialist Party, is expected to be supported by 21-30% of the voters, while far-right party Jobbik is to take up to 20% of the vote.
The Jobbik party has seen a surge in support, causing some polling agencies to suggest that the race for second place is neck and neck.
Polling stations in Hungary opened at 6 am local time and are due to close at 7 pm, with exit polls expected soon afterwards.
