Hungarians do not really like Gyurcsány’s shadow government
After the left’s electoral defeat in April, the leader of the Demokratikus Koalíció, Ferenc Gyurcsány, kept saying for months that his party was “getting ready”, and then in September Klára Dobrev announced that she would form a shadow government. The fundamental aim of a shadow government, which has neither substantive political traditions nor foundations of public law in Hungary, would be to offer voters an acceptable alternative to the reigning government and to demonstrate the governing capacity of the politicians involved in the body. An October opinion poll by Századvég assessed what Hungarians think about the shadow government of Klára Dobrev and Ferenc Gyurcsány's party.

Public opinion rejects foreign funding of election campaigns in Hungary
Sixty-two percent of Hungarians consider it unacceptable for domestic politicians and political parties to accept, directly or indirectly, significant campaign support from abroad, from foreign organizations, or from billionaires, according to the latest opinion poll by Századvég. The survey examined Hungarians’ views on foreign campaign support for domestic political actors in the context of the fact that Mindenki Magyarországa Mozgalom, which is linked to the former candidate for prime minister, Péter Márki-Zay, received significant overseas financial donations in connection with the campaign for the April parliamentary elections.
The United States and China win, everyone else loses with Brussels sanctions
According to the vast majority of Hungarians, the United States and China are the clear winners, while all the other actors – spearheaded by the European Union and our country – are the losers of Brussels sanctions policy and the economic effects of the sanctions. Furthermore, 56 percent of those surveyed believe that none of the parties can emerge victorious from the armed conflict in the end, according to a September survey by Századvég. The survey mapped public attitudes towards the likely outcome of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and the effects of war and sanctions policy.
The pro-sanctions left would put Hungary in danger
Inflationary pressures and an energy emergency are affecting Europe due to Brussels sanctions in response to the Russian-Ukrainian war. Instead of promoting peace, mitigating, or lifting retaliation, the left is calling for sanctions to be increased and extended, which would further increase the rate of price increase in European countries and put the security of energy supply at ever greater risk. Századvég examined what representatives of the Hungarian left think about the sanctions policy.
