United Opposition’s PM Candidate Defeated in His Local Electoral District by Fidesz’s Lázár
Hódmezővásárhely, in southern Hungary, “lies at the dawn of a new era”, János Lázár, Fidesz’s local MP candidate, said after defeating Péter Márki-Zay, the united opposition’s prime ministerial candidate, to win his electoral district on Sunday.

“The civil war ended tonight because we’ve won the war,” Lázár said in his victory speech.

Lázár thanked his family, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his fellow Fidesz MPs for their support, as well as Fidesz activists and volunteers for their work.

He said his campaign had to overcome “attacks and ignoble tactics” to prove that he was worthy of the electorate’s trust. Lázár, a former prime minister’s chief of staff, captured 52.14% of the vote with 96.33% of votes counted.
