Telex reported in November that the Fifth District council had launched – in principle – an international and open single-round tender for selling 16 properties worth a combined Ft 2 billion.
The opposition council members proposed at the time of the announcement of the tender that the sale should be announced publicly but the district’s Fidesz leadership did not agree.
Fidesz mayor Péter Szentgyörgyvölgyi unilaterally decided who won the tenders, utilising powers granted to him during the state of emergency and announced the results later.
He proposed the sale of the more valuable properties, and declared the tender invalid for less valuable properties.
Although the properties have been sold, Karácsony can still stop the deals, Telex writes.
