The relocation project was classified as a priority in 2014, which meant that it did not require a planning tender or approval by planning and city landscaping experts, Pataki said. He said it was unacceptable that neither the plans nor the project’s budget are accessible to the public, which is why Együtt is now requesting this information officially.
The party estimates that the relocation and construction project would cost around 15 billion forints (EUR 48.3m).
Earlier the government said the plans would be carried out over a span of 20 years, and would encompass moving the prime minister’s office to the presidential Sandor Palace, while the chancellery would occupy the former Carmelite monastery next to it, and the offices of the President would be moved to the Royal Palace.
