Hungary primaries deadline extended after 'cyber attack'

20 September, 10:57
(ANSA-AFP) - BUDAPEST, SEP 20 - Hungary's first ever opposition primary elections to find a candidate to take on Prime Minister Viktor Orban were extended Sunday by two days after a suspected cyber attack forced polling to be suspended.

Voting in electoral districts nationwide was suspended Saturday after a system crash, just two hours after polling started. The National Primary Election Commission (OEVB) that organised the vote said in a statement Sunday that first-round voting "will be extended by two days to September 28". Opposition leaders blamed Orban and the government for an attack, saying they were "scared that masses of people wanted to express their opinion".
