Branko Grims, a member of the Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS), called the conduct of the elections impeccable. He emphasized that many people from the EU are afraid of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's politics, as it represents the real, traditional European values ​​that would be swept aside by liberal politics.

Corresponding elections

In anticipation of the OSCE ODIHR mission’s criticism of the Hungarian parliamentary elections, the Hungarian authorities decided that they needed to counterbalance the expected OSCE’s criticism with positive assessments of the elections. To this end, and for the first time in the history of any EU Member State, Orbán’s government invited dozens of friendly politicians, journalists, and civil society activists whose aim was to endorse the elections. These friendly observers – among them members of the European Parliament and of the PACE of the Council of Europe - praised the conduct of the parliamentary elections.
