Official results in Hungary show the conservative Fidesz party securing a supermajority in parliament after Sunday's second round of general elections.
With nearly all the votes counted, Fidesz and the likely new prime minister, Viktor Orban, will control 263 seats -- two-thirds of the 386-seat body.
This will give the new government enough votes to pass legislation without having to secure support from the opposition.
Mr. Orban, who was prime minister from 1998 until 2002, has promised to cut taxes and create one million jobs over the next 10 years.
He has also said he wants streamline the public sector and grant citizenship to ethnic Hungarians living in other countries.
Fidesz won a majority in parliament in the first round of elections two weeks ago.
Sunday's results also give the ruling Socialists 59 seats and the far-right Jobbik Party, accused of being anti-Semitic and anti-Roma, 47 seats.
