The centre-right Fidesz-Hungarian Civic Union (Fidesz) has the strongest mandate of any government since the fall of communism. Several opposition parties plan to field joint candidates in the April 2014 election. However, polls indicate firming government popularity, and Fidesz is likely to be re-elected in 2014 with a majority.

The EU ended its excessive-deficit procedure (EDP) against Hungary in June 2013. As a result of new taxes and the government's determination to avoid re‑entering the EDP, The Economist Intelligence Unit estimates a fiscal deficit of 3% of GDP in 2013, and forecasts a similar level in 2014.

Strong demand for a US dollar bond issue in November indicated that markets remain sanguine over the state of Hungary's public finances. However, worries about the size of the country's external debt remain.
