Budapest, September 30 (MTI) – The Budapest assembly decided on Wednesday to scrap a contract with the operator of 700 advertisement columns in the capital, Mahir Cityposter, from Oct. 31.
The billionaire Lajos Simicska, who was the biggest Fidesz supporter, he has suddenly become part of the opponent. Now the ruling party wants to re-divide the market without Simicska.
The assembly calls on the company to dismantle the columns within sixty days of the contract’s annulment.
Earlier the opposition Democratic Coalition party submitted a report to police against the city’s leadership, saying that, according to press reports, the ruling Fidesz party had managed to place ads at below-market rates with the company operated by Lajos Simicska, and that between 2010 and 2014 the columns had exclusively displayed Fidesz ads.
