On April 12, 2015, radical-nationalist Jobbik party candidate Lajos Rig narrowly defeated his Fidesz–Christian Democratic People’s Party (KDNP) rival in a National Assembly by-election in Veszprém County.
Rig thus became the first Jobbik candidate ever to win a National Assembly election. The other 23 representatives in the current Jobbik caucus and all party representatives in the previous parliamentary cycle gained their seats in the National Assembly via party lists (see National Assembly Election System).
Fidesz-KDNP candidates have lost both by-elections held since 2014 National Assembly elections (see Two-Thirds Minus One). The governing alliance has thereby forfeited the second consecutive two-thirds supermajority it commanded in Hungary’s parliament.
