Metropolitan election committee confirms mayoral election results

The Metropolitan election committee (FVB) announced on Monday that the incumbent mayor of Budapest, Gergely Karacsony, has been elected with 371,466 votes.

The committee said there were 806,142 stamped ballots in ballot boxes of which 24,592 were invalid and 781,550 were valid.

David Vitezy (David Vitezy for Budapest-LMP-Greens) had 371,142 votes while Andras Grundtner (Our Homeland Movement) received 38,942 votes.

The committee’s decision is not binding and can be appealed within three days if a breach of the law can be cited. It is then that the National Election Committee would examine new facts and evidence.
