LMP seeks support from Socialists, Jobbik against road toll
Budapest (MTI) – The opposition LMP party will consult with the other two opposition parties in parliament on the e-toll to be introduced on motorways as of Jan. 1., the party said in a statement on Wednesday.
LMP wants to take the new law to the constitutional court for review, as the party believes the short notice given before the road toll’s introduction hurts citizens’ rights to legal security. The motion needs support from a quarter of lawmakers, the statement said.
Bernadett Szel, LMP’s co-chair, ad Laszlo Lorant Keresztes, the party’s transport spokesman, said making bypass motorways toll-paying is not only another burden the government is putting on the people but also a bad idea in terms of transport considerations. Transport conditions around Budapest and major cities will worsen in wake of the new toll, the statement added.
