The Socialist-Párbeszéd election alliance will cut the monthly price of gas by 30 percent for average consumption, of electricity and district heating by 10-10 percent, respectively, if it comes to power in April, its prime minister candidate said on Saturday.

The alliance’s progressive utility prices scheme has been designed to support average households, Gergely Karácsony told a press conference.

Bertalan Tóth, the group leader of the opposition Socialists, said that since January 1, 2013 ruling Fidesz “has sold gas to households” at a price higher than the price paid for gas by the national gas trading company.

Since Fidesz came to power in 2010, gas transmission has been suspended in a total of 167,000 households and another 20,000 households have been disconnected from electricity grids, he noted.

In response, Fidesz said that the Socialists have been “attacking” the utility price cut schemes ever since it was introduced in 2013 and would fully scrap it if they came to power this spring.

They are “good at making promises” first during an election campaign and then do just the opposite, Fidesz said in a statement, adding that despite their promise they increased gas prices threefold after coming to power.

  1. How can anyone believe a word that the Socialists say? It is true, they are good at one thing, going against their word and lies, lies and more lies. The Socialists are after one thing, and that is to get back into power and line their pockets with all the cash that this Fidesz government has made for the country over the past 8 years. If they got back into power, the country would end up in the same state it was in prior to the 2010 elections, “BANKRUPSY”. Everything that is being said by the Socialists today and up to the election, is nothing more than repetition of when Gyurcsány was in power up to when Bajnai took over in 2009. Everything is a repetiton, and means nothing. Stick with Fidesz and KDNP and our lives will continue to improve. Vote for any of the opposition parties and our lives will be ruined. GOD BLESS ORBÁN VIKTOR and GOD BE WITH ALL THOSE THAT BELIEVE IN HUNGARY.
