DK: 2024 budget ‘based on lies and false numbers’

The draft budget for 2024 is based on "lies and false numbers", the opposition Democratic Coalition said on Wednesday.

Deputy party leader Laszlo Varju cited Laszlo Taso of Fidesz, who he said told a parliamentary committee that the draft budget is “bleeding from a thousand wounds, but its still the best possible, or the least bad budget, because a good budget is impossible in this situation.”

“Even Fidesz can’t hide that they have submitted a budget of price hikes to parliament,” Varju told a press conference, adding that Hungary must contend with “huge tax hikes and rising prices, and Orban’s inflation will further devalue wages and pensions,” he said.
