An increasing number of Hungarians are dissatified with Victor Orban's rule. There's been a string of anti-government protests in recent months, although Orban's party is still leading in polls.
Hungary's Viktor Orban hopes a right-wing alliance can help gain an anti-migrant majority in the European Parliament. The alliance was pitched by Italy's Matteo Salvini, whom Orban described as a "hero."
By giving refuge to former Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, Orban is making a mockery of his government's position. More importantly, he's ridiculing everything the EU stands for, writes Boris Georgievski.
Thousands have rallied in Budapest to demonstrate against controversial changes to the country's labor laws. Hungary's largest trade union has threatened to call a general strike on January 19.
German Chancellor Merkel was greeted by the eastern European leaders, a sign that the tensions of 2015 are subsiding. However, Merkel is expected to face tough questions from the alliance's leaders on a host of issues.
