Economic Woes Could Lead to Fidesz Defeat Next Year

HVG writes that price spikes of 50-60% for energy and raw materials, as well as a shortage of goods at Christmastime, could lead to a defeat for government party Fidesz and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in next year’s elections.

The news source spoke with a tanning salon owner who bemoaned the expected hikes in energy costs, a bookseller who is concerned about the lack of paper worldwide, and auto dealers with empty showrooms due to auto manufacturers having to shut down because of a lack of raw materials.

The end result is that economic concerns could turn voters away from Orbán’s “role as savior of the nation.” [Photo: Pavel Bogolepov/Népszava]
