Municipality elections: Fidesz not a sure bet in Budapest

The result of the municipality elections in October may be uncertain only in Budapest, daily Népszabadság reported on the latest survey of research company Szonda-Ipsos. In the countryside, the governing party alliance is still three times more popular than the opposition parties, but their advantage is not as strong in the capital. While 28% of the Budapest voters support Fidesz, MSzP has 18% and the far-right Jobbik has 4%, while the green-liberal LMP has 5%. Also, in Budapest MSzP supporters show a stronger willingness to vote than those who prefer Fidesz. (BBJ)
