RULING PARTIES NOMINATE SZENTKIRÁLYI AS BUDAPEST MAYORAL CANDIDATE

 

The ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance has named Alexandra Szentkirályi, a government spokesperson, as their candidate for Budapest mayor in the upcoming municipal election. Zsolt Láng, the head of Fidesz’s Budapest chapter, accused the incumbent leadership of having driven the city to bankruptcy and called “for change”. Under Szentkirályi’s leadership the city could “gain new momentum and develop again”, Láng said.
