Fidesz – Hungarian Civic Alliance (Hungarian: Fidesz – Magyar Polgári Szövetség; often shortened to Fidesz) is a nationalist political party in Hungary.

Fidesz is in an alliance with the Christian Democratic People's Party (KDNP). The KDNP is often called a satellite party (meaning that it is strongly influenced by another party) of Fidesz.[8][9]

Viktor Orbán has lead the party continuously since 2003.

Fidesz has been the most popular party in Hungary since the 2010 elections.
