Socialists request constitutional review of Lake Balaton construction regulations
Socialist Party director Zsolt Molnar told an online press conference that the 2018 law in question was only formally about the protection of Lake Balaton. In reality, he said, the law grants exemptions to its own ban on construction within a 30 metre radius of the lake if the projects are approved by government or ministerial decrees, he said.
“It’s time to put an end to Lake Balaton’s destruction and the construction of more marinas and residential parks at the expense of reeds, beaches and camping sites,” Molnar said.
He said his party was committed to continuing its fight to preserve Lake Balaton and other natural lakes for future generations in the Constitutional Court as well.
