A former Hungarian government ally-turned-opposition supporter shut down most of his news empire, in a sign that Prime Minister Viktor Orban's overwhelming election victory may further weaken independent media.
According to official estimates, based on 93% of the votes, Fidesz and its junior coalition partner, the Christian Democratic People's Party, will have 133 seats out of a total of 199 in the new parliament.
"Hungary voted with its heart and its head, ignoring threats from Brussels", said Matteo Salvini, head of Italy's far-right League and potentially the next prime minister there.
Borissov, in his message to Orbán, said: "I highly appreciate the friendly relations between Bulgaria and Hungary and I am confident of the excellent prospects for the development of fruitful co-operation in bilateral, regional and multilateral terms". Netanyahu, who visited Hungary last summer, also thanked the Hungarian leader for his support of Israel in worldwide forums.
The Dutch anti-immigration, anti-Muslim politician Geert Wilders also congratulated Orban.
The proposed legislation is part of Orban's campaign targeting Hungarian born USA financier George Soros, whose philanthropy aims to bolster liberal and open-border values.
Orban has found allies in other right-wing governments in eastern Europe such as Poland that also oppose the EU's refugee policies.
Orban has repeatedly criticized German Chancellor Angela Merkel for her decision to allow over a million migrants into Germany in the summer of 2015.
Asked about possible changes in Hungary's policy toward Germany, Orban said: "We would like to establish continually improving relations with every country".
The right-wing nationalist Jobbik party placed second with 26 seats, while a Socialist-led, left-wing coalition came in third with 20 seats.
Orban's Fidesz party was on track to repeat the two-thirds majority it won in the previous two elections, giving it limitless power to change laws. Leaders of the two parties resigned in light of the result. She tweeted that "nationalists" could win a majority in 2019 European Parliament elections.
The left opposition secured the majority of the capital Budapest, but Fidesz swiped the rest of the country.
Germany's like-minded Alternative for Germany (AfD) tweeted its congratulations to Orban, saying that this was a bad day for the European Union, but a good day for Europe.
"On behalf of the European Council, I wish to congratulate you on the result of yesterday's election", said Tusk in his letter, "During your renewed term as Prime Minister I count on you to play a constructive role in maintaining our unity in the EU".
This has lead to Orban becoming one of the most divisive leaders in Europe, criticized by people like United Nations human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, who accused him of being a racist and xenophobe.
"We have received a strong mandate", the 54-year-old premier told his first news conference since his election triumph, which has triggered the resignation of Gabor Vona, leader of the main opposition Jobbik party in parliament.
Orban, who won a third consecutive parliamentary supermajority, has used the past eight years to extend his influence over the media as part of an unprecedented centralization of power despite European Union objections.
That "constricted the space for genuine political debate, hindering voters' ability to make a fully informed choice", the OSCE said.

Ogunbowale and Jackie Young led the way offensively for Notre Dame , scoring 27 and 32 points, respectively. The Irish chipped away until they took a brief lead with 2:21 left in the period. "There are no bad teams".
