    Seventy percent of respondents said they were “extremely dissatisfied with the way Brussels has handled the migration crisis, the weightiest European matter of recent years,” Szazadveg’s report said on Wednesday, adding that only 26 percent were of the opposite view.

    Fully 51 percent of respondents who declared their intention to vote on Sunday said they supported Fidesz’s ruling alliance with the Christian Democrats.

    The leftist Democratic Coalition is set to gain 11 percent of Hungarian votes in the EP ballot, according to Szazadveg. The nationalist Jobbik party is likely to receive 9 percent, the Socialists-Parbeszed alliance 7 percent, and the Momentum Movement 6 percent, the think-tank found.

    Green LMP and radical nationalist Mi Hazank was backed by 3 percent, while 7 percent of respondents were uncertain about which party to vote for, according to the phone survey conducted between May 10-18 with a sample of 1 000 randomly selected adults.

    Near Zalaegerszeg, in southwest Hungary, Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Monday said in a speech that in the wake of a series on European crises preserving the country’s identity, protecting its security and boosting competitiveness are priorities.

    “These things are, in Hungarian minds, interconnected: protecting our identity and borders is of a piece with the European way of life, the European economic model and the protection of the world’s largest single market.”

    Orban also touched on the political crisis in Austria, as he attended the official opening of a test track for self-driving vehicles. He said: “Our Austrian friends could not come today, due to an extraordinary shooting season having been opened.”

    The opening ceremony of the test track was attended by ministers, foreign dignitaries and heads of domestic and foreign companies.
