This episode features a discussion with Andrzej Sadecki, a senior fellow at the Centre for Eastern Studies in Warsaw. Together with Andrzej, we summarize the parliamentary election in Hungary which took place on April 3rd and coincided with a nationwide referendum. Andrzej provides his assessment of why the ruling party of Fidesz won the election big time and gained the supermajority in the Hungarian Parliament although pre-election polls and experts’ predictions suggested such a scenario was unlikely. Andrzej and Maciek also discuss possible prospects for the country under the fifth in a row term of Victor Orban as the prime of the country.
