Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has prevailed in re-election, attributing his success to the popularity of his “brand of Christian democratic, conservative, patriotic politics.” According to Hungary’s National Election Office, with more than 98% of votes estimated, Orban’s Fidesz party obtained 53.29% of the vote and 135 seats in the parliamentary elections held Sunday, enough to secure a supermajority in the 199-seat Parliament. A coalition of opposition political parties titled United for Hungary accepted the second-highest share of votes and seats, accumulating 34.89% of the vote and 56 seats. Seven of the remaining eight seats in Parliament went to the “Our Country” party, which apprehended 6.15% of the vote in the election. The eighth seat went to a minor political party, the National Self-Government of Hungarian Germans.

In Sunday’s election, Hungarian voters also weighed in on several referendums associated with LGBT issues. Voters in the eastern European country overwhelmingly denied ballot measures that would have allowed “sexual orientation sessions for minor children in public education without parental consent,” “the promotion of gender reassignment surgery for minors,” “the unrestricted introduction of sexual media content to minors” and “the display of gender-sensitive media content to minors.” [tweet_embed] April 30, 2022[/tweet_embed] More than 90% of Hungarians voted against embracing each policy proposal. The promotion of sex changes for minors had the highest level of opposition (95.89%), heeded by the exposure of minor children to sexually explicit material (95.32%), the display of gender-sensitive media content to minors (95.17%), and counseling children about their sexual orientation and gender identity without parental consent (92.34%). Orban’s re-election comes three weeks after the Hungarian Parliament elected Katalin Novak, an Orban ally, to become the country’s first female president. In a 2019 interview with The Christian Post in her power as Hungary’s Minister of State for family, youth, and international affairs in the Orban administration, Novak expressed the Hungarian government was “working closely” with the Trump administration. She said the administration wanted “to get some detail on our pro-family policies and the measures that we have introduced in the last nine years.” [tweet_embed] April 30, 2022[/tweet_embed] Throughout his term as prime minister, Orban’s government has passed policies designed to make it easier for people to raise families. The reason this was necessary was to reverse the declining birthrates that have plagued Hungary and Europe as a whole in recent years. Specifically, the Hungarian government constructed the Family Housing Allowance Program, which provides support so parents can buy or build a new home. The amount of money a family receives under the Family Housing Allowance Program varies based on the number of children. While a family with one child can receive a subsidy of $2,160.72, families with three or more children can receive $36,000. Additional pro-natalist policies adopted by the Hungarian government include free daycare, three years of paid parental leave, free kindergarten, assistance with student loan payments, and the exemption of mothers with four or more children from paying an income tax.
