Hungary election result

Graphic News

April 9, 2018 -- Prime Minister Viktor Orban has won a third straight term in power after his ruling anti-immigration Fidesz party secured a crushing parliamentary majority, granting him two-thirds of the seats.

“We want to call out what’s ailing this continent,” Orban told Echo TV after claiming victory in Sunday’s election. “We don’t want to go against Europe and the EU; we want Europe and the EU to be strong and successful. But before that, we need to be honest about what’s hurting us.”

Chairman of the nationalist Jobbik party, Gabor Vona, stood down on Sunday night after coming second with just 20 percent of the vote. Socialist Party President Gyula Molnar also resigned after taking only 12.2 percent of the vote.

Orban’s strong Eurosceptic and anti-immigration stance has made him a role model for anti-establishment parties from Italy to Poland.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
