Budapest assembly: Building battery plants would require residents’ approval

The Budapest assembly passed a position on Wednesday regarding the construction of battery plants, namely that the city's residents must be consulted before any plans are made to build battery plants or assembly lines within the administrative boundaries of Budapest.

The body approved a joint proposal by group leaders of the opposition Democratic Coalition, Socialists, Momentum and Parbeszed.

The proposal was approved by 17 votes in favour, with representatives of ruling Fidesz-KDNP and independents abstaining from the vote.
