FIDESZ CALLS FOR BUDAPEST ASSEMBLY MEETING OVER ALLEGED PLANS TO SELL CITY HALL

 

Deputies of the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat parties in the Budapest assembly have initiated an extraordinary session of the body to discuss alleged plans to sell the capital’s City Hall, group leader Zsolt Láng said on Monday.
Láng said on Facebook that Gergely Karácsony, the mayor of Budapest, had 15 days to meet the request, though, he added, he should convene the body “without delay” since residents “are entitled to answers to the questions raised in recent weeks”. He urged a “meaningful investigation” by a special committee. Láng has insisted that “more and more audio recordings and documents are turning up” concerning such alleged plans, but the mayor was heard “either denying the plan or contradicting himself”. Karácsony has denied ever planning to sell City Hall.
