The candidate of MSZP reached place four with only 40 votes. The fifth place went to the politician of another local left-wing organization named DISZ. LMP received only 31 votes, the worst result among all candidates. The candidate of Fidesz-KDNP got most votes in the extraordinary mayoral elections in Püspökladány, too. Mayoral elections were held because of the death of the former mayor Mr. Sándor Arnóth in a car accident. From the four candidates, the new leader of Püspökladány became Mrs. Imre Dombi, member of Fidesz, with 42 percent of all votes. Parallel to the mayoral elections the citizens could also vote for their future parliamentary deputy. This part of the election must be repeated as turnout was too low. However, the candidate of Fidesz got the most votes in this invalid round. Lajos Kósa, managing vice president of Fidesz and mayor of Debrecen told in a press conference on Sunday evening that the results of the extraordinary elections in Debrecen and Püspökladány showed that active voters had not turned away from the government.
