Roma residents gather in the slum in Tiszavasvari
Roma residents gather in the slum in Tiszavasvari, east of Budapest September 26, 2014. Tiszavasvari, a town of 13,000, is by far the largest Jobbik-controlled municipality. Hungary's far-right Jobbik party is on track to take over dozens of city halls in a municipal election on October 12, 2014, handing it new powers that, critics say, it will use to persecute ethnic minorities. But the experience in Tiszavasvari is that even the most hardline agenda ends up running aground in the swamp of budget shortfalls, petty squabbles and failed schemes that make up local politics in Hungary. For the town's Roma, many of whom live in a slum of mud huts where half-naked children play in a trash-strewn ditch, the budget shortfall meant at least they did not have to add harassment by a far-right militia to their list of problems.
