Hungarian far rightists, who want to take Transcarpathia, were elected to the European Parliament

Hungarian party "Yobbik", which stands for the accession of Transcarpathia to Hungary, and recognizes the annexation of the Crimea, won three seats in the European Parliament.

This was reported by the Hungarian state news agency MTI.

"Yobbik" achieved its goal in elections to the European Parliament and successfully completed the spring campaign," - the head of the party Gabor Vona said at the briefing of his campaign headquarters.

According to the National Election Office of Hungary, "Yobbik" won 14.68% of the votes and ended up in the second place. The ruling party of the Prime Minister Viktor Orban "Fides" is the first: 51.49% and 12 seats. Hungarian Socialist Party is the third. With the result of 10.92% of votes, Hungarian Socialists receive two seats in the European Parliament.

However, the National Electoral Office recorded a record low turnout in these elections - only 27.64% of Hungarians came to vote.

Recall, on March 27, at the initiative of the party "Yobbik", in front of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, there was the demonstration demanding the return of Transcarpathia to Hungary and recognition of the so-called referendum in the Crimea. MEP from the party "Yobbik" Bela Kovacs, who is suspected by Hungarian prosecutors of spying for Russia, took part in the referendum as an observer.

As reported, on Sunday, May 25, the elections of 751 MEPs were held in the EU. The polls show that European voters have begun to actively support the nationalists, who demand deactivation of integration processes and strengthening of the role of national governments. Thus, the National Front wins in France, the right party "Golden Dawn" - in Greece.
