Budapest will not veto the World Championships in Athletics, because according to Christmas the government released Fudan
Mayor Gergely Karácsony has agreed with the government on the financing of public transport in Budapest – this was discussed by the Straight Talk as a guest. Christmas also announced that the capital will not veto the organization of the 2023 World Athletics Championships.
Christmas said there were two conditions for not vetoing the World Championships in Athletics: receiving health grants and not handing over the areas for the Student City to the Fudan University Foundation in the future. Although health subsidies have been delayed, they are still arriving at the expense of the capital, as we have reported – and the Fudan project is not progressing at the moment.
“I know for a fact that the government has really let go of this Fudan story a long time ago. They let him go because the Chinese let him go, because it’s not worth it to them. ”
Said the mayor. However, the Student City is still needed according to Christmas, because there are dangerously few dormitory places in Budapest. “It’s very bad for rural students who can’t study here because they can’t pay the rent – and it’s very bad for those in Budapest because dormitories lack the rent.”
As we also reported, the state will transfer the HUF 12 billion annual norm for the operation of the BKK to the capital this year, which was prescribed by law.
“I am constantly attacked by the Fidesz members of the Metropolitan Assembly for constantly looking for the bad luck, provoking me, not sitting at the negotiating table. If we do not ignite ourselves in these two cases in the figurative sense of the word, and we do not fool around, beat the table, demonstrate, and go to the Carmelite and threaten, then this money will not come. ”
Said Gergely Karácsony. Under the leadership of István Tarlós, the state paid the annual subsidy fixed in the budget law in the summer, and then the remaining amount was paid in installments on a monthly basis. Last year, in the first year of Christmas’s mayoral term, the capital only received the draft grant agreement in October, it was signed in November and the money arrived in December. Although the government has been hitchhiking Budapest for weeks this year, it seems that public transport in the capital will not stop.
Christmas also talks in the interview that all organs in the government media brought it down Monday morning as the mayor’s service car drives in the bus lane. He says “suspicious” that a video is being made of the 100 meters as the car drives in the bus lane – Christmas is all about being followed by “professional people at reporters”.
