Péter Jakab was re-elected as Jobbik President at the party’s congress on Saturday, Jobbik announced in a statement.
The congress was not open to the public, but the party said that Jakab won 71.4% of the vote, while his lone challenger, János Stummer, only managed to get 27.8%. 245 delegates were at the event, with 243 valid votes cast.
Jobbik’s party congress was overshadowed by reports earlier this week of an attempted rape that allegedly occurred during a party event late last year. [Magyar Hang]
