On Wednesday, Karácsony reacted on Facebook to press reports that Podmaniczky Frigyes Square, Vörösmarty Square and Széchenyi István Square will be transferred to the fifth district local council.
He said that “the nationalisation of these three extremely important squares” would be unconstitutional and the Budapest administration will file a lawsuit if a corresponding law is approved.
The fifth district council said in response that Podmaniczky Square and Vörösmarty Square was revamped with government support by the fifth district council in 2019.
It added that the state of the two squares maintained by the metropolitan council had deteriorated under its “irresponsible and careless management”.
