This paper analyses how economic conditions had possible affects on the voting behaviour of people in parliamentary elections in post-1989 Hungary due to statutory changes over the 1989-2000 period. The analysis focuses on two topics. The first focuses on a number of theories implicating how different economic indicators influence voters. The second is that statutory changes condition voters’ responses to economic performance.
