Budapest City Hall

Fidesz demands information on alleged plans to sell Budapest city hall

The group leader of ruling Fidesz in Budapest's municipal assembly has called on Mayor Gergely Karacsony to clarify if he was aware of talks between any official in his organisation and a private company concerning the sale of Budapest's city hall, a historic building in the city centre, as suggested by media reports.

Zsolt Lang noted that Karacsony had given a negative response to earlier reports on Thursday, but added that “there have been new developments”.

Lang also asked if the mayor would file legal proceedings once it is verified that “the company named in the media” had in fact not received any encouragement from municipal circles.
