He finished his secondary studies in the Calvinist College of Sárospatak and the Pent Valley Technology College in Folkestone, United Kingdom. He graduated as a jurist from the Pázmány Péter Catholic University in 2005. He is a founding member of the LMP since Spring 2009.[1] He was elected as Member of Parliament from the party's National List in the 2010 parliamentary election. He was appointed one of the recorders of the National Assembly on May 14, 2010. He had been a member of the Committee on Immunity, Incompatibility and Mandate since May 14, 2010 and Committee on Local Government and Regional Development since November 2, 2010.[2]

In January 2013, the LMP's congress rejected against the electoral cooperation with other opposition forces, including Together 2014.[3] As a result members of LMP’s “Dialogue for Hungary” platform, including Szilágyi, announced their decision to leave the opposition party and form a new organization. Benedek Jávor said he eight MPs leaving LMP would keep their parliamentary mandates. The leaving MPs established Dialogue for Hungary as a full-fledged party.[4]
