HistoryEdit

In May 2019, it was announced the party will be forming the National Legion, a uniformed 'self-defense' group similar to the Magyar Gárda, the paramilitary wing of the nationalist Jobbik party, which was banned in 2009.[2][3]

In 2019 local elections the party managed to win 8 seats in counties' assemblies. All of these counties were east of Danube.
