Government against Gyurcsány’s firm monitoring development policy
Nándor Csepreghy, deputy state secretary at the Prime Ministerʼs Office, said on Sunday that he had asked the European Commission to reconsider an assignment given to Altus, the company of opposition party leader Ferenc Gyurcsány, to monitor the operation of Hungaryʼs development policy programs, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
Csepreghy said at a press conference before Parliament that Altus representatives visited several ministries last week and presented documents indicating that they have been commissioned by the EC to review development policy and institutions in Hungary for the new EU budgetary period.
Since development policy has been a key issue for the government, it decided in 2014 to transform the regulatory and institutional system governing the use of EU funds during the 2014-2020 budgetary period, Csepreghy said.
