Bulgaria: Orban Claims Victory in Hungary Elections Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, leader of the ruling centre-right Fidesz party is seen prior to his victory speech after the parliamentary elections, in downtown Budapest, Hungary, 06 April 2014.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban has claimed victory in Hungary's parliamentary elections Sunday.

The center-right Fidesz party of Orban took 45% of the vote, with most of the ballots counted, the BBC reports.

"One thing is for sure, Fidesz and the Christian Democrats have set a European record, among the European parties we got the biggest support. Hungarians have said no to leaving the European Union, and have reinforced that Hungary should stay in the EU, but only if they have a strong national sovereign government", Orban commented on the eve of his re-election.

This will be Viktor Orban's third term as Prime Minister of Hungary, after serving once between 1998-2002 and second consecutive since taking office in 2010.

Fidesz is followed by a center-left coalition with 25% and the far-right Jobbik with 21%.
