Kuria orders recount of all votes in Budapest mayoral election

Hungary's Supreme Court, the Kuria, has ordered a recount of all votes cast in last month's election for Budapest mayor, a decision posted on the Kuria website showed on Sunday.

In line with the ruling which partially amended an earlier decision by the National Election Committee, all votes submitted at the mayoral election must be re-examined and recounted, and the results of the election announced based on the recount.

The Kuria ruling cannot be appealed.

The Constitutional Court on Friday scrapped as unconstitutional a June 26 ruling by the Kuria, which had okayed the results of the June 9 mayoral election in Budapest, and ordered the Kuria to make a new decision.
