  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

The centre-right Fidesz-Hungarian Civic Union (Fidesz) retained its two-thirds majority in the April 2014 parliamentary election, taking 133 of 199 seats. The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the Fidesz government to serve its full four-year term. The Unity alliance of left-leaning parties took just 38 seats.

We see few signs of a policy direction change in the 2014-18 term. The focus will be on boosting growth through state measures, easing the household debt burden through cuts to utility prices and foreign-currency loan costs, and taxing certain sectors to keep the fiscal deficit within 3% of GDP.

We expect Fidesz to continue with its combative governing style, both at home and abroad. The strength of the far right will make Fidesz keen to continue to burnish its nationalist credentials, and further clashes with EU institutions and foreign businesses look likely.
