  Abstract:  
After the fall of comunism, Hungary was one of the leading country in Central and Eastern Europe to pursue democracy and market economy. In short time, it was praised for its achievement in those areas, and soon Hungary was invited to join NATO, and starting with 2004, the EU. Yet, after 2010, some transformation took place in the political arena, and as a result, the quality of democracy started to decrease and in just few years, Hungary was the main example for illiberal democracy in this area. The current text aims to analise the changes that occurred in Hungary, to what extent democracy is jeopardised and what are the explanations for the illiberal turn.

Keywords: Hungary, democracy, elections, FIDESZ, iliberalism.
