Opposition parties in Terézváros have united – against fellow opposition politician György Bálint from the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP), who is in a feud with representatives in the Budapest district.

All of the parties in the democratic opposition, DK, Jobbik, LMP, Momentum, and Dialogue, support the representative body’s statement: György Bálint is unworthy of representing the people of Terézváros, and jointly call on him to resign his seat in the body.

-wrote the distrct’s mayor, Tamás Soproni of Momentum, on social media.

The representative body’s decision came about after the Budapest Metropolitan Court legally ruled that György Bálint and the local president of the MSZP, Csaba Hatvani, had made a suspect deal years ago that could have caused the district to lose 14 million Ft. (US $42,800).

The local members of Momentum, DK, LMP, Jobbik, and Dialogue unanimously stated that after today’s events, György Bálint has no place in the opposition coalition.

-Soproni wrote in his post.

However, MSZP members in the Terézváros government did not support the representative body’s decision.
