47 Seats.

with 2 comments

According to the Beeb nearly all the votes are counted in the Hungarian election and it seems that the neofascists in the Jobbik Party will have about 47 seats in the new parliament.

With approximately 12% of the vote they have a sizeable bloc in the Hungarian political system.

One can only wonder how this will galvanise neofascism in Eastern Europe. How depressing.
