Das ungarische Wahlsystem im Zentrum eines strategischen Institutionendesigns1
Abstract: Between 2011 and 2013, the Fidesz government re-wrote the Hungarian law on parliamentary elections. The new law enabled Fidesz to obtain a two third majority in the House with only 44,9 % of the votes cast. This essay gives an overview over the theoretical framework of electoral systems and their modification. After that, it analyses the factors of the new Hungarian law that favour the majority and examines the strategic interests behind the present institutional design.
