The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the government, led by the nationalist-conservative Fidesz-Hungarian Civic Union (Fidesz), to serve a second full four-year term, following Fidesz's re-election in April 2014.

We expect policy continuity under Fidesz, with the use of state measures to boost growth and hold down domestic utility prices. The emergence of sectoral labour shortages means that job creation is no longer a priority.

Given the ongoing threat posed by the far-right Jobbik party, Fidesz will maintain a tough nationalist stance and could shift further to the right. More clashes with EU institutions and foreign businesses are therefore likely.
