Amendment Alarms Opposition Orbán Cements His Power With New Voting Law

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has used his party's two-thirds majority in parliament to pass a constitutional change that will force voters to register before elections. Opposition parties fear the move will boost his power and pave the way for election fraud, but they see no hope of appealing against it.
Earlier this year, demonstrators took to the streets of Budapest to protest against Prime Minister Viktor Orban's Fidesz party.
