János Áder

Hungarian President János Áder has convened the inaugural session of the new parliament for May 2, the Office of the President said on Tuesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Hungary's constitution mandates the president to call the inaugural session of parliament within 30 days after a general election.

Hungary's last general election took place on April 3.

The Fidesz-KDNP alliance will take 135 mandates in the 199-seat parliament.

DK, Jobbik, LMP, MSZP, Momentum, and Párbeszed, a group of parties spanning the political spectrum who banded together with the aim of unseating the government of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, will take 57 seats, and Mi Hazánk (Our Homeland) will take six.

The representative of the National Self-Government of Germans in Hungary has secured a single seat in parliament.
