This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Hungary
Foreign relations

Parliamentary elections were held in Hungary between 26 January and 4 February 1905. The result was a victory for the Party of Independence and '48, marking the first time the Liberal Party had lost power since 1875. Because of bad decisions after the elections, the Parliament was dissolved in 1906. Franz Joseph I of Austria ignored the result and instead of the victorious allied opposition he kept István Tisza in power, and then on 18 June he nominated baron Géza Fejérváry mashal (the captain of his Hungarian bodyguards) as acting Prime Minister, which deepened the crisis.
