Orban's ruling rightwing Fidesz party was already the clear winner of the election hours after polls closed last Sunday.In the end, these ballots made little difference, with Fidesz winning 49.6 percent of votes, far ahead of the nationalist Jobbik party in second with 19.2 percent and the Socialist-led center-left alliance with 12.0 percent, according to the state newswire MTI.This means Fidesz [along with its junior coalition partner the Christian Democrats] will have 133 seats in the 199-seat parliament. Another leftist party Democratic Coalition (DK), led by former prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsany, will take up nine seats, while the green party LMP will have eight.
