The ruling coalition between Fidesz and the Christian-democrats (KDNP) is projected to win between 112 and 123 seats in the 199 seats Parliament at the parliamentary elections in Hungary, a poll of the Nezopont institute said. The elections will be held on Sunday, April 8.

The poll shows that the the right wing Jobbik party could win between 36 and 42 seats in the Parliament, followed by the Socialists (19-20), the Democratic Coalition (11-13) and the LMP party (6-8). Nezopont has forecasted a turnout of around 65%. If the Nezopont forecasts will prove correct, the coalition that supports current Prime Minister Viktor Orban could win a solid majority in the Parliament, but not a two-thirds majority, as also other opinion polls previously said. At the 2014 parliamentary elections, the Fidesz-KDNP coalition won 133 seats. The eligible voters are around eight million and in a single round they will elect for a 4-years term a unicameral Parliament composed by 199 seats. The current PM Viktor Orban is set to win its third consecutive term in the elections on Sunday, after the two victories in 2010 and 2014.
