Country Report
The article presents a political outlook for Hungary. The Hungarian parliament rejected motions to dissolve parliament and call for an early general election. Such motions were presented by the Fiatal Demokraták Szövetsége (Fidesz) party which cited alleged policy failures. Votes from the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) and the Alliance of Free Democrats (SZDSZ) were able to defeat such motions. Such attempt to unseat the government indicates that the country is sinking into recession.
