Hungary will hold a general election on April 3

President Janos Ader of Hungary has set April 3 as the date for the country's general election in 2022. Prime Minister Viktor Orban's Fidesz party and its coalition partner, the Christian Democratic People's Party (KDNP), received 49.27 percent of the vote in the last election, resulting in 133 seats in the country's 199-seat unicameral Parliament.

The Democratic Coalition (DK), Jobbik, LMP — Hungary's Green Party, Momentum Movement, Hungarian Socialist Party, and Dialogue for Hungary — have chosen to merge before of the election to increase their chances of winning.  In October 2021, the opposition alliance held primary elections to choose Orban's challenger.

The primary was won by Peter Marki-Zay, the 49-year-old conservative mayor of Hodmezovasarhely in southeast Hungary. To enter Parliament, a political party must get 5% of the vote.
