Millions of Hungarians are voting today in an election current Prime Minister Viktor Orban's ruling Fidesz party is expected to win. Orban won two landslide victories in 2010 and 2014 and is seeking a third term in office.

Orban has far-right admirers across Europe who like his tough line on migrants. He is also credited with keeping the budget deficit under control and reducing unemployment. Viktor Orban's critics say he is spreading hateful rhetoric.
