Summary/Abstract: There are many reasons why it is difficult to apply the concept of populism to Hungarian politics. However good a definition of party populism is, research of this phenomenon in the Hungarian party system runs into obstacles which hinder one’s endeavours and to some degree distort the reality. The most important obstacle is the concept’s pervasive presence in the country’s own discourse: in journalism and in society generally, but also in literature, both popular and scholarly.
