Hungary’s National Election Committee (NVB) has registered the national list of Mi Hazánk (Our Homeland) for the April general election, as the party has nominated the required number of candidates in individual constituencies.
The far-right party’s list, comprising 208 candidates, is headed by party leader László Toroczkai.
The NVB registered Mi Hazánk’s list after determining that it meets the requirements for compiling national lists. Under Hungary’s election rules, only parties that field at least 71 candidates in at least 14 counties and the capital can put together a national list.
The deadline for announcing the national lists is 4pm on Feb 26.
Parties may nominate a maximum of three times as many candidates on their national lists as the number of parliamentary seats that can be won from the votes casts for national lists, which is 93.
Hungarian voters are to elect a 199-member parliament on April 3.
