Hungary's lawmakers elect Viktor Orban to 3rd term
Hungarian lawmakers have elected Viktor Orban to his third term as prime minister, a month after his Fidesz party won its second consecutive two-thirds majority in the legislature.


Orban was supported by 130 deputies from Fidesz and its small ally, the Christian Democrats, while 57 lawmakers from the opposition parties voted against him on Saturday.


Speaking in the legislature after the swearing-in ceremony, the 50-year-old prime minister said he would continue with the policies of the past four years. (AP)
