Ex-football player and Hungarian celebrity Krisztián Berki announced on social media that he is going to run for the mayor’s office of Budapest this fall. The notorious media celebrity and reality show star seems to believe that he is going to become the next mayor of Budapest.
Krisztián Berki seems pretty serious about running for major, Magyar Narancs reports.
Berki shared the news in a video he posted on social media about one week ago. In this video, he says:
“Yes, I am running. Yes, I am going to become the next mayor of Budapest in October. Yes, only I can make Tarlós retire. Yes, I need you too! We are going to do it together! Berki for Budapest!”
In the post itself, he writes:
“I am going to become Budapest’s next major in October! I never wanted to become a politician, and it is not my political ambition that made me make this decision now. As a local in Budapest, I know and feel that this city needs change and a good leader. What I see in the opposition leads to nowhere, it is only the struggle of people who never took PE lessons in school. This is not the way to remove István Tarlós. However, it is time for him to retire! … I was never defeated before, and I am not going to start now. “
Do not confuse this Berki with well-known Hungarian gymnast, Krisztián Berki. This Krisztián Berki used to be a football player before he became notorious for his careless and often outrageous behaviour. He was the first person to introduce “ball ironing” to the people of Hungary. He had this particular cosmetic procedure for men done, and he was not shy about it. Apart from the ball ironing, he also caused public outrage by causing several accidents, and driving with 300 km/h while recording himself on his phone, Ripost writes.
Berki was already parodied on social media by the mayor of Drávaszerdahely, György Alpár, who made a suspiciously similar video to that of Berki’s. The only difference is that Alpár is kidding, but Berki seems 100% serious.
