PM'S OFFICE: GOVT MAINTAINS STAND AGAINST BUDAPEST CONGESTION CHARGE

 

The government continues to object the introduction of congestion charges in Budapest, initially proposed during former mayor Gábor Demszky’s term in office before 2010, the prime minister’s office said. If current mayor Gergely Karácsony insists on the introduction of congestion charges, the issues should first be discussed in the city’s Municipal Assembly, then in the Budapest Municipal Development Council and finally by parliament, it added. The prime minister’s office reacted to deputy mayor Dávid Dorosz’s remarks on commercial channel RTL Klub that the city would restrict the entry of cars into the city centre and the use of diesel-run vehicles within five years.
