FIDESZ: KARÁCSONY MUST PUBLISH INFO ON HIS DISTRICT'S FINANCES

 

Gergely Karácsony, opposition candidate for Budapest mayor and incumbent mayor of the city’s 14th district, must reveal information on the finances of his district under a Tuesday court ruling, the Budapest spokesman of ruling Fidesz has said. Barna Pál Zsigmond said his party had sued Karácsony after the district mayor failed to answer their question concerning the district’s payables and receivables, and added that the court confirmed that the data requested were public information. “District 14 is bankrupt, that is what Karácsony is trying to conceal,” the spokesman insisted, adding that “Karácsony’s inaptitude has ruined the district budget”.
