The present form of the Budapest-Belgade rail line doesn’t make any sense, Péter Márki-Zay said to news channel ATV.

The prime minister-designate for the political opposition said that he would consider renegotiating the terms of the investment project.

I believe that even if Orbán has made a commitment in the current contract that the next government cannot break or override, it will still be possible to renegotiate its terms.

-said Péter Márki-Zay.

The candidate for prime minister pointed out that the exact terms of the contract remain secret. On this point, a court-issued ruling on Friday determined that contracts related to the project will have to be made public, although the government may still appeal the decision to the Curia High Court.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán had previously said that everyone would benefit from the rail project being carried out with Chinese assistance. However, investigative news outlet Investigate Europe recently reported that it would take about 979 years for the money invested into the project to pay off.
