“Culture Coupon” & New Budapest Amusement Park: Mayoral Candidate Vitézy Unveils Manifesto
Dávid Vitézy, a candidate for mayor of Budapest backed by opposition LMP and a local association, unveiled his manifesto on Friday, promising to take the running of the city away from party politicians and put it in the hands of professional managers and vowing to build thousands of units of affordable housing.

Vitézy also pledged a new transport police force and five new tram lines, as well as cooperation with the central government on revamping the HÉV suburban railway.

He also promised to “fight” to improve hospital conditions and to create new public parks, stressing the importance of green public areas and high-standard Danube river banks.

The economist who specialises in transport and mobility also pledged to put a scheme in place to resurface many of the city’s roads and to provide a “culture coupon” worth 10,000 forints to all Budapest residents.

Also, he said a new animal protection shelter would be established, and he promised that Budapest would once again have an amusement park.

Meanwhile, Koloman Brenner, the Jobbik-Conservatives candidate, said today that he was standing aside and would support Vitézy.
