Country Report
The article provides information on the political outlook in Hungary for 2010 relative to its domestic politics. It states that should the Fidesz party secure a robust mandate in the 2011 election, the political risk profile of the country would improve as high as 70.0 compared to the present rating of 64.2, as the government's ability to pass legislation would improve. However, there would be no significant shifts in the medium-term policy agenda in the country should the Fidesz party wins.
