The government and Budapest are blackmailing each other with a HUF 10 billion issue, the patients in the capital may be the losers

Verbal left for the government
Gy. Németh Erzsébet, also added: “From here I also send a message to the government, they are not having fun with the health of the people of Budapest”. You can access the latest news of BudaPestkörnyeke.hu by clicking here.
That was what the Government Information said
In addition to the fact that, according to the government, Budapest cannot veto the World Athletics Championships, Balázs Fürjes asked the capital to declare whether there is an agreement between the government and the capital. If the contract is terminated, the capital will have to pay back the sums already paid, Gergely Gulyás said when asked about the 10 billion health subsidy.
Gergely Gulyás sees this in the press
At the Government Info, the spokesman put it this way: they saw in the press that Erzsébet Gy. Németh and Gergely Karácsony had terminated the agreement on the initiative of DK.
It is an agreement concluded in 2019 between the capital and the government, according to which the government will support the capital’s district self-government and the capital government’s basic health care and outpatient care developments with a total of HUF 50 billion over 5 years, if the capital accepts the organization of the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest.
Chinese University, World Cup and 10 billion
The picture is nuanced by the fact that the resolution of the Budapest General Assembly includes not only the issue of the World Cup, but also the issue of Fudan University v. Student City. In other words, they expect 10 billion this year and expect the government not to give land to Fudan to the detriment of the Student City.
According to experts, the veto of Budapest is more of a political chess game, as the capital cannot terminate the World Cup because it is not included in the contract. It was concluded by the government with the international federation.
