Political analyst Attila Tibor Nagy tells Népszava that unlike the successful campaigns of 2014 and 2018, ruling governmental party Fidesz this year is running an unfocused political campaign that lacks a large, overarching theme. Instead, the party is just repeating well-worn topics such as anti-LMBTQ propaganda, migration, EU disbursements, and rhetoric against former prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsány.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s speech commemorating the Oct. 23 public holiday also reflected the lack of an overarching theme, and that content-wise there was hardly anything new in what the prime minister had to say, according to Nagy.
