DK calls on government to pay back extra profits from ‘utility fee increase’

The opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) has demanded the government pay "extra profits earned from seven-fold utility fee increase' back to families.

DK’s executive deputy leader, Csaba Molnar, told an online press conference on Wednesday that the cabinet was selling gas above average consumption at five times the price it paid for it. The MEP said that being a social democrat, he found it “nauseating” that out of a 5,000 forint gas bill, the profit that the government was pocketing was 4,000 forints.

“It is indecent, unfair and goes against everything the state should do in such a situation,” he said.
