László Toroczkai is the founder of the far-right 64 Counties Youth Movement (HVIM) in Hungary. He resigned from the leadership of the movement in 2013 when elected as Mayor of Ásotthalom with 71.5 percent of the votes.[1]

In 2004, Toroczkai was banned from Serbia for one year because of a fight in the town of Palić. In 2006, the authorities of Slovakia also banned him from the country for five years because of demonstrations that he organized in front of the Slovakian Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Since 2010 he is a local representative of Csongrád County. He is not a member of the Jobbik party, but he led its county list during the elections of 2010 and 2014.[2]

In 2017, Toroczkai endorsed policies to ban pro-LGBT rights messages and Islamic religious practices in the city, arguing that homosexuality and Islam posed a threat to Hungarian traditions.[3]
