LMP EYES MORE 'GREEN LOCAL COUNCILS'

 

At stake in October’s municipal elections is whether there will be more “green local councils” after the ballot, opposition LMP said over the weekend. Hungary needs local councils that will approve within the shortest amount of time schemes promoting the sustainable use of local resources, Erzsébet Schmuck, the party’s deputy group leader, told a press conference in Budapest. Such schemes will aim to improve the living conditions of local residents, reduce pollution, thwart climate change and help people adapt to its effects, she said.
