Hungary, Voting, - 

Itʼs election day in Hungary and many, home and abroad, voiced their fear that this election is rigged/not clean. The voting urns looking like a trashcan doesnʼt help, either…

@gergely Oof, that doesn't sound good.

So the same government. led by Putinʼs friend. won with huge numbers (2/3 of the Parliament is theirs which means they can even change the constitution as they already did before). I strongly believe both parties cheated a lot. but it appears the governing party is better in their own game. Also. see my remark about the urns in the original post. - 1/1

What makes me feel better is that the referendum they held together with the elections is invalid. It was about some transphobe shit. they held it together so a lot of people cast their vote. but there are not enough valid votes to make it valid (a lot of people checked both answers deliberately. stupid answer for stupid questions). - 1/1

@gergely @naruciakk @rin @piggo @Coffee Now that the governing party won with a landslide, they’ll probably still implement part of the referendum (like the previous one on “migration”), since 92+% of people who submitted a valid vote voted for “no” (what a surprise). But if I read the first question of the referendum correctly, that will also ban heterosexuality, just like they did so in Florida :blobfoxdevil:

It's not that hard when by using the state force you acquired like 80% of the media sphere in the country.

re: Hungary, Voting, - 

@gergely @naruciakk @rin @piggo @Coffee It’s not like it’s any reassurance (to the contrary), but according to volunteer vote counters (including guys I work with at uni) the vote, at least in person, was fair and square. The districts were gerrymandered to hell, but orbán also took the popular vote, so even that wasn’t what made the election decisive. Most likely there was cheating (especially with mail-in votes), but ultimately, it was the years of propaganda that mattered and genuinely convinced the people, which is not illegal (even if highly unethical).
