What do the municipal election results portend for the future?
The recent Hungarian municipal elections had some surprising results. Although Fidesz managed to secure a victory, it lost significant positions in major cities, including the capital itself.  The arising questions the panel discussion will aim to answer:

Do results indicate the end of an era as well the beginning of a new era? How will Fidesz react to the new status quo?
Can the newly elected heterogeneous alliance, comprised of six political parties, set aside their differences and work together in a way they keep their supporters?
What does this portend for the next election?  Will the six party formula work in the general election at 2022?
Panelists of the event:

Boris Kálnoky, Correspondent of Die Welt
Balázs Orbán, Parliamentary and Strategic Secretary of State, Prime Minister's Office
Zoltán Pogátsa, Editor in Chief of Új Egyenlőség
The discussion will be moderated by Árpád Csabuda, Founder of PaIR Club at International Business School and intern at the DI.
