TRUE VOTES HUNGARY #TISZTAVOKS
CAN ORBÁN HANDLE THE TRUTH?
Orbán claims to have won a 2/3 majority that would allow him to change Hungary's constitution at will.
But Hungary's Supreme Court has found that the election was marred by “organised” fraud, and numerous Hungarian media outlets have reported evidence of much wider malpractice.
We’ve put together a team of activists, data scientists, programmers and political experts inside and outside Hungary to find out how extensive this voter-fraud was. Our findings published ahead of the 2019 European Parliament elections show a clear pattern of electoral malpractice that raises serious questions about the fairness of elections process in an EU member state.
WHAT WE UNCOVERED
Testimonies from more than one hundred and sixty polling station officials have revealed the illegal bussing of voters from Ukraine, outright vote buying, voter intimidation, interference in the counting process, and post vote tampering.
Data analysis has raised questions about inconsistencies in the number of eligible voters, missing absentee ballots and suspicious ticket-splitting in swing constituencies.
Our research, which also pulls together local press reports from Hungary, Serbia and Romania for the first time, also raises concerns about the registering of phantom voters in border towns, election website malfunctions, and a network of companies responsible for building and running Hungary’s official election software and their links to Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party.
Orbán won his two-thirds super-majority by just two seats last year. Now testimonies alleging electoral fraud show how it could happen again.
UNHACK DEMOCRACY EUROPE
FIGHT BACK AGAINST THE NATIONALIST ELITE
Across Europe, a new nationalist elite has hacked into our democracy and is turning us against each other. They attack courts, independent media and anyone who stands in the way of their power.
They want the world to believe their people don't want real democracy. But more and more people across the continent are standing up against them and their destruction of our institutions.
We set up Unhack Democracy Europe to support the millions of Europeans, East and West, who know that real democracy needs checks and balances, the rule of law, human rights and a plural media.
