A fresh poll has found that most Hungarians regard Prime Minister Viktor Orbán as better suited to guaranteeing Hungarian security and warding off the negative economic effects of the conflict than Péter Márki-Zay, the united opposition’s prime ministerial candidate. According to the think-tank Századvég, 66 percent of Hungarians consider PM Orbán the stronger leader on the security question, while 25 percent said the same of Péter Márki-Zay. Fully 65 and 27 percent responded respectively on the question of who was more likely to mitigate the economic effects of the conflict on Hungary. A similar proportion responded on the question of the government’s handling of the Russia-Ukraine war.
