Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Before you'd celebrate, in spite of a very heated campaign, the turnout was a dismal 44.8% and the candidate of far-right Jobbik got 14.1% (followed by 4.6% for the candidate of the conservative-Green LMP). But, at least one can conclude that Orbán's newest idea for a smokescreen campaign, anti-refugee xenophobia based on Western European models (on the occasion of the massively boosted influx of asylum applicants from Kosovo), didn't gain (enough) traction.
