Orbán, municipal councils association head discuss state support for localities

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán discussed state support for troubled localities with Karoly Szita, head of the Association of Cities with County Rights (MJVSZ), on Thursday, the PM's press chief said.

At the meeting at the Castle District premises of the Prime Minister’s Office, the two officials agreed that Hungary has “entered the age of dangers”, noting that many Hungarian localities were in a difficult situation due to the war in Ukraine, the “flawed sanctions” imposed by Brussels and the energy crisis, Bertalan Havasi told MTI.

The government’s aim is to protect the residents of Hungary’s localities, pensioners, families, the caps on household energy bills and jobs, he added.
