Phantom Residents are Voting and Collecting Pensions Near the Border with Ukraine

There is a two-bedroom house at the edge of Kisar, near Hungary’s border with Ukraine. The house looks like nothing out of the ordinary, but, according to the official registry, more than a hundred people are living there. There are many small towns and villages in an electoral constituency in Eastern Hungary, near the border, where the number of residents increased unusually – despite the fact that the population of Hungary is decreasing and the number of voters dropped by 1.2% nationwide in the past four years.

Hungarian Supreme Court: Voter Buying in Pécs on 8th April Declared Unlawful

The supreme court ruled there was election fraud in Pécs on 8th April. It announced that the “election’s fairness was compromised” at the 040 precinct in Pécs. One of the independent members of the local election commission provided a voice recording of a conversation with 2 voters, in which he stated that he had received money to vote for Fidesz and he and others were transported to the polling station, where they voted in the presence of a “chaperone” with a list in the polling booth.


Hungarian Supreme Court: Unlawful Organised Transportation of Voters with Fake Papers from Ukraine

HirTV aired a report shot on the day of the elections at the Ukrainian-Hungarian border showing Ukrainian-Hungarian ethnic Hungarian dual citizens who were given fictitious permanent addresses in Hungary being systematically transported to small villages in the county of Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg to vote. The report included a recording of the former mayor of the Ukrainian town of Tiszaújlak in which he admitted organising a team to transport around 500 people to vote for Fidesz. The villages affected were Sonkád, Fülesd, Milota, Csaholc, Kispalád, Botpalád and Zsarolyán. The opposition MSZP-Párbeszéd party appealed to the constituency election commission and the National Election Commission, asking them to annul the results and order a re-vote, but their request was refused. They then turned to the Supreme Court, which ruled that the organized transportation of Ukrainian-Hungarian citizens was illegal. It did not however order a re-vote claiming a lack of sufficient evidence. Fidesz has so far faced no legal consequences from the ruling.


Turnout going down as time went on

At 6.30 pm the National election office claimed 5,365,511 people had voted. Half an hour later the figure was changed downward to 5,011,380. Later still, it had gone back up, but only until 5,283,097. The National Election Office later claimed that out of area votes were mistakenly included in the 6.30pm total.


Breakdown of the National Election Office Computers

There is evidence that the NEO computers went down, providing an opportunity to manipulate the figures. Though this is currently being denied by the NEO, it is impossible to verify this denial, and no transparent investigation is being conducted.
