#AceWorldNews – HUNGARY – (ALJ) – April 06 – Hungarians are voting in parliamentary elections, with incumbent Prime Minister Viktor Orban projected to win.
Orban was predicted to triumph in Sunday’s elections after four years in office, with polls indicating that the only questions were whether Orban can retain his two-thirds parliamentary majority and if the far-right Jobbik might beat the centre-left opposition alliance into second place.
“I know we are favourites,” Orban said at a final rally on Saturday, urging supporters to come out and vote.
“In 2002 we were also ahead in the polls … but still lost the elections.”
Voting stations opened at 6:00 am (0400 GMT) and were due to close at 7:00 pm (1700 GMT), with exit polls expected soon afterwards.
