Telex takes a look at Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony’s performance in office two years after his election in 2019. The site claims that the mayor had a stong start in his first 100 days, and that by January 2021 he had completed six out of the 23 promises made during his campaign.

However, issues related to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, as well as the mayor’s unsuccessful campaign to be the joint democratic prime ministerial nominee, have led to 14 of his promises not being met yet. In particular, the article mentions that the mayor still has to work on reducing the price of rent in the capital, increasing transparency, creating a unified parking system, adjusting rent to a tenant’s income, and reducing noise pollution around Budapest airport.
