Since the Socialists and Dialogue agreed to run with a joint list headed by Dialogue chairman Gergely Karacsony, they must reach 10% – instead of 5% – to get into the parliament.

45% of left-wing voters said they’d support the withdrawal of their candidate in favour of Jobbik, in case their candidate is more likely to defeat Fidesz, while 40% said no. 34% of left-wing voters would vote for Jobbik, in case their candidate is more likely to defeat Fidesz, while 50% ruled this possibility out.
