Viktor Orban to act against George Soros charities after sweeping Hungarian vote

Hungary election: Viktor Orban likely to win fourth term as prime minister, projections suggest

Near-complete election results show Orban's Fidesz party winning a supermajority of 134 seats in the 199-seat national assembly.

"We submitted the bill before the election campaign so voters could make their decision ... knowing our intentions", Orban said.

Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Hungary's closest ally in the European Union, tweeted: "The road to reform is never easy", adding that "the support of the majority of society shows that it's worth making the effort".

However, nationalists and those on the far-right who admire Orban's strident brand of identity politics and claims to be a protector of "Christian Europe" will take comfort in the result.

Fidesz's nearest challenger Jobbik, a far-right party that has recently moved towards the political centre, polled just under 20 per cent. It received 19.2% of the votes, the National Election Office said. With nearly all of the results counted from the vote on April 8th, Fidesz appears likely to have won a two-thirds super-majority, with 133 of the chamber's 199 seats-enough to alter the country's constitution all by itself.

Richie Incognito is a mess and finished with National Football League (probably)
Former Dolphins and current Bills guard Richie Incognito is "strongly considering" retirement, according to multiple reports. While there hasn't been an official story or an announcement from the Bills, it makes you wonder what's going on.

The coalition has passed a slew of laws tightening regulations on the media, central bank, constitutional court and nongovernmental organizations.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe will present a report on the election at 3 p.m. local time that is expected to be critical of aspects of the election.

The left-wing Greens slammed the EPP for backing and congratulating Orban when Hungary is facing legal action from the EU and the European Parliament is investigating whether Budapest is living up to its rule of law obligations. Orban has accused the Commission of overreach in Hungary's affairs, particularly in its attempt to impose a quota system that would have obliged Hungary to settle refugees. He fired a volley at the European Union to stop lecturing the Hungarian government over its shift to the right, adding: "I've always thought that this policy of arrogance and paternalism with respect to other member states is wrong".

Orban has sought to portray himself as a defender of Christian Europe against Islamic immigration.

The EU has launched a battery of legal action against Orban's government, taking it to the bloc's top court over a crackdown on education and foreign-backed civil society groups that critics say targets USA billionaire George Soros. "Hungary voted with the heart and with the head, ignoring the threats of Brussels and Soros's billions", Salvini tweeted in a reference to Hungarian-born investor George Soros.
