(ANSA) - BUDAPEST, 19 SEPTEMBER - The first primary elections of the opposition in Hungary to find a candidate to challenge Prime Minister Viktor Orban have been extended today by two days, until 28 September, after a cyber attack blocked the system.
Voting in the districts was suspended yesterday only two hours after the opening of the platforms. The leaders of the opposition parties, who for the first time in the history of Hungary are united in a common anti-Orban front, have blamed the government for the attack. "They are afraid that masses of people will want to express their opinion," they said. Fidesz, the premier party, responded by calling the opposition "incompetent" and the main pro-government newspaper Magyar Nemzet wrote that the elections were marked by "absolute amateurism" and "enormous organizational problems".
