Replacements for Dobrev and Karácsony in Parliament Announced

Although MEP Klára Dobrev from DK and Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony won seats in Parliament on the basis of the joint opposition party list, they’ve decided to keep their current jobs and not serve as Members of Parliament.

The National Election Commission (NVB) announced that Bernadett Bakos, a member of the Kőbánya local municipality from LMP, will take Dobrev’s seat, while Karácsony’s mandate will be filled by Rebeka Szabó, a fellow member of Karácsony’s Dialogue party who came up short as an individual candidate in Pest County.

It is not yet known who will take Péter Márki-Zay’s seat in Parliament, as the united opposition list leader has also decided to remain as mayor of Hódmezővásárhely instead of becoming an MP. [HVG]
