Incumbent Prime Minister Viktor Orbán (above) has won a fourth consecutive term in office — his fifth in total — after a dominant performance at the polls from his nationalist Fidesz party.

Six opposition parties had rallied their efforts to unseat Orbán behind one candidate, Péter Márki-Zay.

However, on polling day their support faltered and they proved no match for Fidesz which has secured another two-thirds majority in parliament.

With around 91% of votes tallied, Orban’s Fidesz-led coalition had won 53%, while a pro-European opposition coalition, United for Hungary, had just over 34%, according to the National Election Office.

The Aviva Stadium lit up in the Pride colours in 2019

This evening.

Via The Irish Sun:

Dublin’s Aviva Stadium will be lit up in the colours of Pride tonight to show support for members of the LGBTI+ community in Ireland.

The move comes in the wake of UEFA blocking Germany’s proposal to do likewise for their EURO 2020 fixture against Hungary.
