Investors root for slim orban victory in Hungary vote

BUDAPEST: Investors would prefer that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban win a small majority in Sunday’s elections to build on his economic policies but fall short of a landslide victory that could let him double down on his illiberal political agenda.

 The preference for stability means the market reaction to a victory by Orban’s Fidesz party may be muted.A scenario that would see the premier regain a supermajority in parliament would be viewed more skeptically as it would give him a blank check to continue a crackdown on democratic institutions.
