Parliamentary elections were held in Hungary on 17 May 1953.[1] As would be the case with all elections for the remainder of Communist rule, voters were presented with a single list from the Communist Hungarian Working People's Party, comprising Communists and pro-Communist independents. The Working People's Party won 206 of the 298 seats, with the remaining 92 going to independents.[2]
