Falus: Don't move gov't into Buda Castle
Ferenc Falus, the candidate of the leftist parties for Budapest mayor in the upcoming municipal elections, said that, once elected, he would prevent the planned relocation of the cabinet from its current offices to premises in the Buda Castle, nepszava.hu reported.
The relocation will not add to the national economy yet will cost hundreds of billions of forints, he said, adding that instead of its own “luxury investment projects”, the government should rather earmark sufficient funds for the upgrade of Budapest’s third metro line.
Falus said that once elected, he would prevent the implementation of “this unreasonable, megalomaniac project.”
