Party lawmaker Antal Csárdi told an online press conference that a reduction is needed because many Hungarians cannot afford to buy increasingly dear food due to its high VAT content.
Currently restaurant bills carry only 5% VAT but the retail price of vegetables and fruit from shops include 27% VAT.
Further price increases affecting food can only be avoided by reducing the VAT, he said.
