Fidesz: Foreign money ‘clearly linked’ to Karacsony

Zsolt Wintermantel, the leader of the Fidesz-Christian Democrat group in the Budapest City Assembly, said in a speech before Wednesday's session that the left had campaigned with foreign money in the run-up to the 2022 general election, money that was "quite clearly" linked to the mayor of Budapest, Gergely Karacsony.

He said since 1990 there had been a political consensus that no one should run for public office using the money of foreign influential groups or under the pressure of such groups, but this had been upended last year.

Wintermantel addressed Karacsony, asking him whether he did not feel that his silence on the matter was “highly embarrassing”.
