Hungary's general election to be held next April 11 and 25
Portfolio.hu reports that Hungarian President László Sólyom has set the date of Hungary's regularly scheduled parliamentary election to April 11 and 25. An election campaign is now underway in the Central European country, and recent polls indicate that Hungary's main opposition party, the right-of-center Fidesz remains set to score a landslide victory over the ruling, post-communist Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) - which has been in deep trouble for most of the past four years, as I've noted in my previous blog postings on Hungary over at Global Economy Matters (available here and here).

Hungary's 386-seat unicameral National Assembly is elected by one of the world's most complicated electoral systems, combining French-style runoff voting in single-member constituencies with regional-level party-list proportional representation and a cumbersome top-up national list that partially compensates parties for the disparities between votes and seats introduced by runoff voting at the constituency level and (to a lesser degree) PR at the county level. Nonetheless, if opinion poll figures hold, Fidesz's already enormous popular vote would in all likelihood translate into a parliamentary supermajority of two-thirds or more.

Elections to the Hungarian National Assembly has detailed results of parliamentary elections in Hungary since 1990, as well as a review of Hungary's electoral system; see also my comments on a discussion of electoral reform in Hungary at Fruits and Votes.

Chile and Ukraine hold presidential elections
Chile and Ukraine are holding presidential elections today, in both instances under the runoff voting system. The vote in Ukraine is a first round in which no candidate is expected to win an outright majority, in whose case a runoff election among the top two candidates would be held next February 7. Meanwhile, Chile already held presidential and parliamentary elections last December 13, but no candidate secured an absolute majority in the presidential poll, and Chilean voters will choose today between the top two candidates in last December's first round, namely Sebastián Piñera Echenique of the center-right Coalition for Change and former president Eduardo Frei Ruiz-Tagle of the center-left Concertación, which has ruled Chile since 1990.

I've commented about both elections over at the Fruits and Votes blog posting on Presidential elections in Chile and Ukraine; more detailed postings will be available soon on Global Economy Matters.

In the meantime, Presidential and Legislative Elections in Chile has detailed results of Chilean general elections since 1989 (including last December's vote), while Chile's democratic restoration, two decades on presents an overview of Chilean politics since the restoration of constitutional rule in the South American nation in 1988-89.

Finally, I do not have an Ukraine page yet, but Ukraine holds an early parliamentary election has a comprehensive review of political developments in Ukraine since the Eastern European country attained independence in 1991, up to their early parliamentary poll in 2007.


Sebastián Piñera Echenique has been elected President of Chile. With nearly all polling stations tallied, Piñera narrowly prevailed over former president Eduardo Frei Ruiz-Tagle by a margin of 51.6% to 48.4%.

The Chilean Interior Ministry's 2009 Election Results website has live presidential runoff election results in Spanish.

Meanwhile, Ukraine's Central Election Commission website has live 2010 presidential election results here, in Ukrainian. Early figures have Viktor Yanukovych in first place but short of an absolute majority, with Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko firmly in second place. As for incumbent president Viktor Yushchenko, he is currently trailing in a distant fifth (that's right, fifth) place.
